Black Theatre Live


Veiled & Vinegar

A new play Sumerah Srivastav commissioned as the inaugural production of SayWhat Theatre in association with Tamasha and Redbridge Drama Centre.

“I’m like a wheelbarrow man, people always trying to control me.”

Written following conversations with young people across the country on the theme of identity. Veiled & Vinegar is a performance portrait of what it is to be young in Britain today.

“Take your clothes off and no one bats an eyelid but cover your head and the world has an opinion.”

Sana and Chris are old friends, whose paths cross again, triggering some old emotions and new dilemmas. Can they trust themselves and each other enough to find the answers?

Fast-paced and gripping this is a brilliant debut production from Sumerah Srivastav. Directed by Maria Pereira. Featuring a fresh and feisty cast of 6 upcoming young actors between the ages of 16 and 21 years.
