Nkenna Akunna’s Some Of Us Exist In The Future
Chiamaka is new to all this. Fresh off the plane from the UK, she’s new to Brooklyn and its extremes. She’s new to queer dating. She’s new to being an immigrant. Most of all, she’s new to the voice of the god. Utterly original, wryly funny and always gripping, Some Of Us Exist In The Future follows one woman’s journey to find her place in a world that’s not all it seems.
Suitable for ages 14+. Contains references to drug use, mental illnesss, racism, homophobia, and some strong language.
Tajinder Singh Hayer’s Ghost Stories From An Old Country
Dalvir has always told a good ghost story, properly unsettling dark tales to send a chill right through his younger brother Amar. But now Dalvir’s almost a ghost himself, cloistered and secretive. Amar desperately wants to reconnect with the only family he has left, but can he unravel Dalvir’s stories to find a way back to his brother? Threaded with captivating fables, Ghost Stories From An Old Country is a riveting and poignant exploration of the ties that bind us.
Suitable for ages 12+. Contains discussions of mental health, suicide, therapy and loss.
Tom Powell’s The Silence and The Noise
Every teenager knows what it’s like to be stuck between things: childhood and maturity, innocence and experience, hope for the future and uncertainty about what that will be. But Daize is torn between even greater challenges: her love for her vulnerable mother and her dangerous friendship with Ant. An outsider with knockout trainers, Ant has just appeared on her doorstep, bringing with him a whole world of trouble. The Silence and the Noise captures the story of two young people on the edge.
Suitable for ages 14+. Contains strong language, with some references to violence, drug abuse, and domestic abuse.
This event is part of our Furnace Festival 2021 – a week-long celebration of new work by new artists.
