'You do realise that your premier black woman role model was literally a puppet controlled by a white man, right?'

Opera singer Simone very quickly discovers that London was not the BNP-free utopia she’d always dreamed of. Meanwhile, actress Cassi is bored battling it out for the illustrious roles of ‘Sassy Friend’, ‘Spunky Slave’, and ‘Third Crack Whore From The Left’ at every audition.

Desperate to be seen as they are, not as the colour of their skin, they decide to seize back control and write their own play.

[This is that play]

With music, laughter and searing honesty, SHUCK ‘N’ JIVE is the debut play from Cassiopeia Berkeley-Agyepong & Simone Ibbett-Brown, directed by Soho Theatre Associate Artist Lakesha Arie-Angelo.
