A little more about the project:

Shadows in Different Shades is a new play by by writer Oladipo Agboluaje, developed in partnership with Utopia Theatre Company. Inspired by Moji Kareem’s life and that of her mother and daughter, the piece deals with what it is to be a daughter and a mother; a story of migration and shifting identity. ‘Shadow in Different Shades’ is a compelling and thought-provoking tale of dreams and broken promises, of hope, optimism and resilience in the face of harrowing circumstances.​ ​The play will address a whole range of issues including love, loss, struggle with self and the relationship between religion and mental health, position of women in society, religious freedom, miscarriage and female genital mutilation. Nigerian music will play a vital role in the piece. There will be a reading of Shadows in Different Shades in the Crucible Studio on​ 24th May 2018.

We would need you to be available to attend a meeting with Artistic Director Moji Kareem on ​21 March, 2018​ – it’s here that she will tell you all you need to know to get going.
