Talking About A Revolution

by Diana Nneka Atuona, babirye bukilwa and Malaika Kegode. Co-directed by Chinonyerem Odimba and Campbell X
12 - 15 Oct 2022
Running time
90 minutes

What would a revolution look like in 2022?

The last three years have been turbulent, traumatic, and terrorising globally. So, when are we taking to the streets?

Two Black lesbians kidnap Black celebrity mogul Kevin West.
A trans woman refuses to leave the women’s changing room.
And an Incel’s cousin takes to Instagram Live.

This October, three exciting voices in British theatre today respond to the moment we find ourselves in with their own versions of revolution – unvarnished, honest and raw.

Join us for a triple bill of short plays and world premieres by Diana Nneka Atuona, babirye bukilwa and Malaika Kegode, produced by fearless British African heritage contemporary theatre company tiata fahodzi.

Content warning: includes adult themes; strong and offensive language.


Revolution: Where Do We Begin?

A post-show discussion

Join writer babirye bukilwa, co-directors Chinonyerem Odimba and Campbell X, and cultural historian Sofia Akel for a post-show discussion on Fri 14 Oct. In this conversation, our panel will explore what it looks like to care for ourselves and each other in the revolution, what accountability looks like in the revolution and what activism looks like today.

Admission is included in tickets for Friday’s performance of Talking About a Revolution.
