I want to find it all now
know our names know the others in history
so many women have been lost at sea
so many stories have been swept away
Aisha, Yomi, Beth and Opal couldn’t be more different, but when Aisha hosts a dinner party, the friends soon discover that they’re all looking for an answer to the same question. Does it lie in Aisha’s childhood? Or in Beth and Opal’s new romance? Who will tell them who they really are?
What starts out as a friendly conversation between women, soon turns heated when Yomi reveals what she really thinks about Beth and Opal’s relationship.
Live music and spoken word collide in an explosive gig-theatre event that breathes new life into Scottish National Poet Jackie Kay’s 1986 masterpiece. Directed by Lynette Linton (Sweat, Richard II), this bold reimagining is a celebration of queer women of colour across generations.
Chiaroscuro will be the final edition in the Passing the Baton series, following the acclaimed revival of Winsome Pinnock’s Leave Taking (2018), and the anticipated production of Caryl Phillips’ Strange Fruit (2019).
