Podcast - All Write! New Black Showcase returns for 2019

Posted on 11 November 2019

After participating in our Critical Mass programme for emerging BAMER playwrights, Santoshi Mann and Sabiha Mank will see their plays read out as part of our 2019 New Black Showcase.

This double-bill of rehearsed readings kicks off on Wednesday 13 November with Santoshi Mann’s Pick N’ Mix, a story of a father and daughter relationship which breaks down during Diwali celebrations over a disagreement about the true Word of God. Then on Thursday 14 November, Sabiha Mank’s Confetti will draw inspiration from a real-life news story to explore the disappearance of a Muslim girl during Ramadan and its impact on three of her friends.

Ahead of the show, they told us about their Critical Mass experiences and the plays that they developed through the programme.

Tickets for the New Black Showcase are available to book now.
