‘Funny, gripping show packs a punch’
★★★★ Evening Standard

‘I am that mixed raced kid, like 50/50, on the fence, luke warm, in-between maybe. Trust me, around here I’m about as black as it goes…’

Jazmin feels different. She doesn’t want to stay in the village. She doesn’t want to have a baby. She doesn’t want to laugh at racist jokes in the local pub. She’s got to get out.

Developed by Talawa Theatre Company and Soho Theatre Writer’s Lab, this is a partly autobiographical dark comedy about finding your voice. Written and performed by Alfred Fagon Award and Soho Young Writers’ Award 2016 shortlisted writer Natasha Marshall.

Age Recommendation: 14+
Running Time: Approx 60mins
