Description

She Is A Place Called Home

Tuesday 3rd March – Sunday 8th March 2020, 6.20pm (60 minutes)
(Sunday matinee, 3.20pm)

“So Dad’s getting another wife. (We were shocked too).”

She Is A Place Called Home tells the story of two sisters in the run up to their Dad’s wedding as they grapple with his decision to get another wife, all the while rehearsing the traditional Nigerian dance he’s asked them to perform.

Set against the backdrop of a family in crisis, this unique exploration of British Nigerian sisterhood shines a light on what it means to exist in the space between two worlds – the trade-offs you must make, the lies you must tell and the contradictions you must somehow
make peace with.

Debuting ahead of International Women’s Day, She Is A Place Called Home, is ultimately a tale about sisters as they confront what their Dad’s decision means for their faith, their family and their future.

The play was developed as part of the VAULT Festival New Writers Programme 2019, led by Camilla Whitehill, and showcased during VAULT Festival 2019 in a sold-out show.
