Anna’s life is sorted. What’s not to like? She’s in her 30s, still ‘young gifted and Black’… or so she hopes. She’s driven, ambitious and surviving in a turbulent world – but despite all this, there’s one thing that’s missing – love.
Could being in your 30s ‘gifted and Black’ be the problem? Is it her, is it them, or is it love itself?
Through a fusion of poetry, spoken word, dance and music (R&B, Hip Hop, Gospel) we see Anna take her Love Steps.
In her debut play, writer Anastasia Osei-Kuffour asks: What are the pressures placed on people to find a significant other – and how are you viewed if you haven’t? Does finding love define your identity or can your self-worth and self-esteem exist outside of that? Why is there a timeline in society by which we should have completed certain life events?
