About the festival


Could you put your white best friend on stage and remind them that they're part of the problem?


Even if you love them?


Even if you never want anyone to feel for even a moment how you feel living in this world everyday?


Rachel De-Lahay's provocative act of letter writing engages with racial tensions, microaggressions and emotional labour, asking the privileged to step back and for the rest of the room to take up space.


She and director Milli Bhatia have commissioned eleven writers to respond with their own letters that say the unsaid to the people that matter most.


Featuring different letters every night from some of the most exciting voices in the UK, My White Best Friend (and other letters left unsaid) will include work from Bola Agbaje, Zia Ahmed, Travis Alabanza, Fatimah Ashgar, Nathan Bryon, Matilda Ibini, Jammz, Iman Qureshi, Anya Reiss, Nina Segal, Tolani Shoneye.


Performers will read these newly created pieces live onstage each night - without having seen them ahead of time.
