Pov Stories Told Through: 6 Performers, 2 Chairs, 1 Hamburger.
"Racism and sexism don't exist," a friend says one day.
He is adamant.
"They can't do.
Especially not in the UK."
Equal part autobiographical, equal part verbatim, For a Black Girl is our response.
With two actors, one movement ensemble and over sixty characters, we will show you:
- A courtroom and an unforgettable trial
- A game of Ghettopoly
- A homeless lady questioning the future
- One man's story of going bra-less
- A comprehensive guide of what NOT to do during Never Have I Ever.
But ultimately it is up to you to answer the question: do all stomachs matter?
For a Black Girl explores female sexuality, violence and the staggering effect of everyday racism.
Join us as we uncover the ugly truths behind court rooms, classrooms and bedrooms in this candid exploration of the Black British experience.
Fusing spoken word, interviews and movement, For a Black Girl is a raw, thought-provoking and satirical show.
This is It Theatre is not here to give marginalised groups a voice.
They already have a voice.
We are here to listen.
