Produced by BlackFest and Theatre503 in association with Tamasha
Curated by Titilola Dawudu
LoveSexIdentityAmbition is a weeklong festival of monologues taken from the book ‘Hear Me Now’ Audition Monologues for Actors of Colour, co-created and edited with Tamasha Theatre, and published by Oberon Books.
Each night the audience is invited to participate in discussions with a dynamic and engaging host around the stories women of colour are being told in the theatre, and how many more stories there are still left to tell.
Writers in the festival include Femi Keeling (2017 BBC Writers’ Room alumna and member of the Orange Tree Writers Collective), Rabuah Hussain (whose 4-star debut play ‘Spun’ is being adapted as a TV series for Wall to Wall) and Guleraana Mir (Offie nominated playwright and one half of The Thelmas).
