Talawa Firsts

Thursday, July 15, 2021 - 19:00 to 21:00

Talawa Firsts, the stage for fresh Black creative voices, will livestream new work by some of the most exciting British writers this July and pay-what-you-can booking is open.

On Thursday 15th July, the new plays from Manchester-based writer, performance artist and producer, Keisha Thompson and writer and producer Juliana Ayeni Stevens will have their staged readings. Thompson’s 14% follows Nadia and Tony as they attempt to quantify their Britishness in a spiralling double narrative set within a claustrophobic train carriage. Ayeni Stevens’ Work This Pussy introduces us to Kitz, a Black British Nigerian who is proud to be from Essex and is unafraid to talk about her sexuality, her childhood, her culture and her faith. After years of suppressing her sexual identity, she's on a path to tackle those cultural, social and religious conditions to finally face who she really is. But how real is her life?
