FADES, BRAIDS & IDENTITY
GLOBAL BLACK VOICES
CURATED BY BRIDGET MINAMORE FADES, BRAIDS & IDENTITY GLOBAL BLACK VOICES CURATED BY BRIDGET MINAMORE

The first ever Global Black Voices showcases excerpts of plays by black writers from around the globe never before staged in the UK.


Curated by poet and journalist Bridget Minamore, the selected works are:

  • Deux Femmes on the Edge de la Revolution by France-Luce Benson (USA/Haiti) directed by Kaleya Baxe

  • The Preacher’s Wife by Shayera Dark (Nigeria) directed by Abigail Sewell

  • No Easter Sunday for Queers by Koleka Putuma (South Africa) directed by Femi Elufowoju Jr.

  • I Love Him BUT… by Maxwell Odoi-Yeboah (Ghana) directed by Sean Graham

  • How Blood Go by Lisa Langford (USA) directed by Stella Odunlami

  • 54 Silhouettes by Africa Ukoh (Nigeria) directed by Anastasia Osei-Kuffour

The readings will be followed by a post-performance discussion, Black British Theatre and Beyond—telling stories about Blackness across the diaspora, which will be chaired by Bridget Minamore with Inua Ellams, Jasmine Lee-Jones and Sophia A Jackson.

A platform for stories unheard: Global Voices is a theatre company working with international playwrights based outside the UK to showcase plays in translation and from the wider English-speaking world, through uniquely curated events.
