Black Plays Series: Teenage Kicks (Week One)

Saturday 31st October 2015

Exploring coming-of-age stories. Disenfranchised and voiceless, young people exist on the edge of their societies, confused, abandoned and ignored. Loss, identity, transition and transformation persist as the characters struggle to find their place in the adult world.

Plays covered:
Skyvers by Barry Reckord
Little Baby Jesus by Arinze Kene
Twice Over by Jackie Kay
Three Birds by Janice Okoh

Most of the plays covered in this series can be found in the Black Plays Archive. This is an online catalogue of the first professional production of every African, Caribbean, and Black British play produced in the UK. In addition to the catalogue there are a number of contextual resources, including audio recordings of play extracts, essays and video interviews.
