A Soho Theatre And Nouveau Riche Production
Where is home?
Thought I was home
I fought then came home
Thought I was home....
A powerful and urgent exploration about how society stereotypes Black masculinity is the subject of a brand-new film created by award-winning creative movement Nouveau Riche and Soho Theatre, London’s leading producer of new theatre, comedy and cabaret.
Typical, written by Ryan Calais Cameron, initially directed for the stage and now for the screen by Anastasia Osei-Kuffour, uncovers the man and the humanity behind the tragic real-life story of Christopher Alder, a Black British ex-serviceman.
First performed in 2019 at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe before the hit play transferred to Soho Theatre for a sell-out run, this work has been revived to be filmed during the Covid-19 outbreak and shot adhering to social distancing guidelines, on location at Soho Theatre.
A Wrested Veil and Theatre503 Co-production
Before Evening Comes explores a future where the perceived threat posed by young boys of colour has finally been eliminated. The government mandates that once a boy turns thirteen, his right leg is to be amputated just above the knee. Time begins with Totome excited to meet "the butcher" (James) and finally become a man. Totome's mother Mary hopes his talent for tap dancing will allow him to stay whole. Theatre503 International Playwriting Award 2018 finalist Philana Imade Omorotionmwan delivers a devastating and terrifying allegory for a future that no longer seems as far fetched as we can imagine. Executive produced and directed by Anastasia Osei-Kuffour.

A Wrested Veil Production
A play fusing poetry, music, rap and dance, exploring love — the choices we make and what happens when love goes wrong.
Lyndsey is looking for love. Will true love be found in the blue eyes of dreamy Damian or in the brown steadfastness of Hosea? What makes us choose the way we do, and what does true love look like? Written and directed by Anastasia Osei-Kuffour.
