‘Meek’ @Headlong Theatre at Unity till Sat 15th Sep

A not so holy story of ruthless state control that will have you hooked at the very first. A play of friendship and one woman’s determination not to be broken.

In this uncanny, high definition world, we are all more connected, more vulnerable and more human- but not equally so. This play shows how a small act of resistance can lead to a political revolution.

‘Meek’ is a tale which explores the line between religion, politics and the power of social media. A talented group of actors to watch, showing raw emotions. This play is a candid, uninhibited and emotional visceral act, with an intimate tender portrait of friendship, hurt and loss.

I was fixated by this new blend of dramatic theatre, of geopolitics and religion that catches the still sad voice of humanity. It’s a play that leads to questions and conversations, which have been incorporated with a post-show discussion.
‘Meek’ is certainly a play that reflects on our own fraught times giving the audience a roller coaster of tension and adrenaline, of nervousness and intrigue, drawing you in deeper and deeper right until the sting at the end.

This is a must to see, with a Sat Mat 2pm.
‘Meek’ by Penelope Skinner, a Fringe First Winner and directed by Amy Hodge gives the audience a play that’s very much of our times.
It just might change the way you think!

Summer’s Coming-Get Out There!

With summer almost here (or almost gone if you’re that type of person ;-) .) Here’s a post I wrote a couple of months ago that may give you a few suggestions about what to do on a day off.

I hope you enjoy it.

Nina-A Story About Me And Nina Simone

Nina-A Story About Me And Nina Simone is on this week at the Unity Theatre.
Devised by Dritero Kasapi and Josette Bushell-Mingo the show blends superb music, brilliant singing and righteous anger against continuing racism and violence against the black communities across the world. From 60s civil rights struggles to the present day, it’s a thought-provoking and at times an uncomfortable ride. Delivered to perfection by Josette Bushell-Mingo it’s a tour de force performance packed with the best of Nina Simone’s substantial back catalogue.The production, music and lighting are fantastic. It’s showing tonight and until Saturday. If you can get a ticket go along it’s superb.
