Soho Theatre’s world premiere production of curious, written and performed by the award-winning Jasmine Lee-Jones, opens 16 September – 16 October.

curious is Lee-Jones’ second play following her critically-acclaimed seven methods of killing kylie jenner  Royal Court), for which she won the Evening Standard Award 2019 and Critics’ Circle Theatre Award for Most Promising Playwright. Set against the sprawling backdrop of urban London across centuries, curious is a frank, funny and moving excavation of the lives of two actresses who are young, Black, queer and trying to find out who they are.

Jasmine Lee-Jones, curious playwright and performer said:
‘To me, curious is a deeply personal story of excavation past and present. Words can’t express how excited I am to be sharing it with Soho audiences in the coming months. I was still at drama school when I first shared the play with an audience nearly three years ago. I always sensed the show needed a second life and as such it feels like an immense privilege to be putting it out into the world again. After debuting as a writer with my first play seven methods of killing kylie jenner in 2019, it feels super exciting to be coming to this production as a performer too.’
