The twin juggernauts of Hip-Hop and feminism are on a collision course. And Testament reckons he’s the guy to sort it out. A rapper and World Record holding beatboxer, he thinks he’s a right-on kind of guy. Then his daughter is born and suddenly he’s not so sure. What will he discover as he starts to unpick his own prejudices? With a dose of wit, a knack for self-deprecation and a truck-load of honesty, Testament is ready to find out.
Created by Testament
A West Yorkshire Playhouse, Royal Exchange Theatre, Roundhouse and Camden People’s Theatre co-production in association with LittleMighty
