15 Mar to 21 Apr
World Premiere
Arinzé Kene is a star in the making, whose accolades as an actor for stage and screen include Girl From The North Country at the Old Vic and One Night In Miami at the Donmar Warehouse. He is best known for BAFTA-nominated film The Pass alongside Russell Tovey (for which he won the prestigious Best Supporting Actor award at the 2016 Evening Standard Film Awards), as Simba in The Lion King, as Ashley in E4’s Youngers, and as Tyler in Netflix’s Crazyhead. Arinzé’s writing credits include good dog (Watford Palace Theatre, UK tour) and God’s Property (Soho Theatre, The Albany).

“Here is the city that we live in
Notice that the city that we live in is alive
Analyse our city and you’ll find that our city even has bodily features
Our city’s organs function like any living creature
Our city is a living creature
And if you’re wise enough, you’ll know not all of us are blood cells…
Some of us are viruses.”

Arinzé delivers an epic, lyrical journey through the pulsating heart and underground soul of inner city London. An inventive blend of gig theatre, spoken word, live art and direct address, Misty confronts the assumptions and expectations underpinning the act of telling a story.

Misty is directed by Bush Theatre Associate Director Omar Elerian (NASSIM, One Cold Dark Night, Islands) and will feature an original musical score performed live during the show.

“Kene has a thrilling flair for language” The Times
“One of Britain’s most exciting young playwrights” The Guardian
“He sings, really bloody well” Time Out on One Night in Miami
