Advertisementblack futures, old hopes
In a country fighting for independence, a white man is trapped in a black family’s house without their knowledge. As time passes, strange sounds and a stubborn stench fill the house. The family wonders if they are living with ghosts, but something more sinister is at play.
This debut play, from playwright-to-watch Tinashe Jakwa, is a fresh and exciting exploration of how to overcome the past. The show journeys into the joys and pains of navigating racial divisions in a biting and humorous way.
With a fresh spin on telling stories about difficult moments in history and presented by APK Productions, the show is for everyone who wants to build a better future.
A note from the artists:
Due to circumstances beyond our Team’s control, stillbirth will now be presented in the form of a dramatised reading. We apologise for any inconvenience this change may cause, and we hope to still see you for this iteration of the play at The Blue Room Theatre's Summer Nights festival.
You can expect the same fresh and haunting lighting, sound, and visual designs supporting an amazing cast of performers as we dive into Tinashe Jakwa’s evocative new play. The only difference is that the performers will now be reading from scripts and there will be less moving around onstage.
So, come and join us on a journey into a world where lines between past, present, and future are blurred as characters grasp at their distant and everyday hopes in stillbirth: A Dramatised Reading !
