N*gger presented by Nicole Acquah
N*gger is a one woman show exploring the relationship between identity, power and language. The show uses poetic storytelling to track the journey of the N word, from the Portuguese/Spanish origin, to its use today.
N*gger is part scripted, part improvised and part English, part Portuguese, placing a history of conflict and reclamation side by side
Performed by Nicole Acquah, writer of For a Black Girl.
How much power does our language have over us? Come join the (bilingual) conversation!
Is it wise to ask the questions you always wanted to ask?
Let’s Summon Demons is a play examining our attitudes to ritual, to revenge and to the uprising of female power. Can community lead to mob mentality? What are ghosts and demons and do they come from below or from within? If you stare into the abyss, can you come back?
Join our coven for one night to encounter comedy, folk horror and – perhaps – some demons.
Kiss Me. Help! I hate you
Three women at different stages of their lives in the same pub on the same night, what are they thinking?

This is the first scratch of a show which is a co-production with Writers’ Centre Norwich and their InnCrowd scheme. Written and performed by Jemima Foxtrot and directed by Hannah Ringham.
