Due to Covid isolation requirements we are unable to perform Lava from Friday 23 to Saturday 31 July inclusive. If you have booked tickets for these performances, you do not need to do anything – our team will be getting in touch with you to manage your booking. We are a small team so please bear with us.
We are continuing with our plans for performances from 2 August, and with the live stream from 16 August.
This is nice, init? I like it. Good little set-up to tell you the story of my name. The story of my true name.
When a woman receives an unexpected letter from the British Passport Office, she is forced to confront an old mystery: why does her South African passport not carry her first name? Armed with the wisdom of favourite 90s TV shows, she sets out on a journey that will take her back to the turmoil of Mobutu’s Congo, growing up in post-Apartheid South Africa, moving to Ireland and finding love in a hostile England.
As her journey becomes inextricably linked with the tides of global history, how far will she go to unravel the truth? By turns wickedly funny and strikingly lyrical, Benedict Lombe’s Lava is an explosive debut starring Ronkẹ Adékoluẹjo (Three Sisters), that will turn the way you see the world on its axis.
