TAILORED PERFORMANCES: 5 June, Relaxed; 12noon 12 June, Parent & Baby
“What people you know can party through all of the earth’s elements?”
Carnival is here. The streets of Notting Hill are alive with history and amongst the pulsating soca, dazzling colour, and endless sequins and feathers, Jade and Nadine are fighting for space in a world they thought was theirs.
A timely reflection on the Black British experience and sexual politics of Carnival, J’Ouvert is a piercing, hilarious and fearless story of two best friends, battling to preserve tradition in a society where women’s bodies are frequently under threat.
J’Ouvert marks the debut play of Yasmin Joseph and directorial debut of actor Rebekah Murrell (Nine Night, National Theatre, Trafalgar Studios), with the two combining forces with producer Tobi Kyeremateng to create an exciting new theatre company, bringing this rhythmic, vibrant, testimony of womanhood to life.
RELAXED: For anyone who benefits from a more relaxed performance environment. House lights are left up with audience free to exit and reenter as required. Sound levels are reduced and any strobe / ‘flashing light’ effects will be omitted also.
PARENT & BABY: Similar to our Relaxed Performance in terms of technical alterations, but provided as an opportunity for new mums and dads to enjoy a spot of theatre without the need to hire a babysitter. Please note, we do not exclude other audience members from booking to see this performance.
Yasmin is one of Theatre503’s resident playwrights, The 503Five, and an alumna of the Soho Theatre Young Writers Lab. Recent credits include Sugar (Kiln Theatre: Mapping Brent) as well as short plays, The Place of Shining Light (Theatre503) and Do You Pray? (Theatre503 and Southwark Playhouse).
