BLACK IS THE COLOR OF MY VOICE

Fringe First award winner Apphia Campbell stars in her acclaimed play, that has played sell-out seasons in Shanghai, New York, Edinburgh and at London's Trafalgar Studios, Wilton's Music Hall and Crazy Coqs. Inspired by the life of Nina Simone, Campbell's stunning solo performance follows a successful jazz singer and civil rights activist seeking redemption after the untimely death of her father. She reflects on the journey that took her from a young piano prodigy destined for a life in the service of the church, to a renowned jazz vocalist at the forefront of the Civil Rights Movement.

Written and performed by Brendan Murphy, Directed by Hamish Macdougall

Quentin Crisp: Naked Hope

'Naked Hope' is a glorious, truthful and uplifting celebration of a genuinely unique human being, and of the urgent necessity to be yourself. Written and performed by Mark Farrelly, and directed by the legendary Linda Marlowe, who also directed Farrelly's show 'The Silence of Snow'. 'Naked Hope' depicts the legendary Quentin Crisp at two distinct phases of his extraordinary life. Firstly, in the late 1960s in his filthy Chelsea flat. The second part of the play transitions the audience to New York in the 1990s. Here a much older Quentin, finally embraced by society, regales the audience with his sharply observed, hard-earned philosophy on how to have a lifestyle.

Written & Performed by Mark Farrelly, Directed by Linda Marlowe, Sound by Tom Lishman
Presented by Seabright Productions
