Talawa presents an exciting development in its ‘Flipping the Script’ readings at the Young Vic. Live streaming of the readings will allow writers across the UK to join in and comment on what we consider to be the best untold Black British stories as Talawa continues to pursue a UK wide discussion around Black British work.
The series has always proved to be a sold out success but has been limited to London audiences. Now, Talawa wants the writers of Theatre Writing Partnership to share in the rich abundance of plays reaching Talawa’s offices and that would otherwise remain unknown. The first play, WHITE PAPER, by Stevie Amuzu, is a heart-rending and wickedly funny investigation of generations of a mixed race family and the false loyalties of parentage. Its style is unusual – subtle story telling emerging from a storm of words – and we’d like your comments. Does this approach represent a new direction in story telling? Please join us on September 8th at 7 p.m. at <http://www.livestream.com/talawabroadcasts> for live streaming of the event and join in the continuous online chatroom feedback. It’s time to talk to each other.
