Racism and sexism don’t exist,” a friend says one day. He is adamant. “They can’t do. Especially not in the UK.” 

Part autobiographical, part verbatim, For a Black Girl is our response. With two actors, one movement ensemble and over 45 characters, we will show you:  

  • A courtroom and an unforgettable trial  
  • A game of Ghettopoly  
  • A homeless lady questioning the future  
  • One man’s story of going bra-less  
  • A comprehensive guide of what NOT to do during Never Have I Ever 

But ultimately it is up to you to answer the question: do all stomachs matter? 

For a Black Girl explores female sexuality, violence and the staggering effect of everyday racism. Join us as we uncover the ugly truths behind court rooms, classrooms and bedrooms, in this candid exploration of the Black British experience.

“A vital and vibrant two-hander that scrutinises racism and sexism” – ★★★★  The Stage
