Black Theatre Live


Up North

“Booms with passion and energy …it’s not a voice I’ve really heard before and certainly not one that frequents London stages and it’s 100% true to its voice”. Nina Steiger, Associate Director Soho Theatre

“I am over 60, and a complete "Hip hop virgin" …. I came out feeling totally surprised that I enjoyed the production so much! The story about identity and friendship in "Up North” is gritty and sentimental without being mawkish! “ audience member at studio presentation

“this project has such potential to really speak to a wide audience, many of whom may feel alienated from so much theatre”  James Hadley,  Arts Council England
