BLACK (2018)

By Keith Saha
Directed by Julia Samuels

A hard-hitting show about racial tensions in the U.K. today

Nikki doesn’t think that her Dad is a racist, he just cares deeply about his community.

But when a Zimbabwean family move in over the road, the dog won’t stop barking, the local kids start lobbing stones, and her Dad starts laying down the law.

This provocative and engaging show from 20 Stories High digs deep at the heart of racial tensions in the UK today.

Written by award winning writer Keith Saha, with lyricism and live DJ soundscapes from Chunky and the raw talent of Abby Melia – this is a vital and challenging piece of theatre.
