ChiaroscuroPart of Lynette Linton's first season as Artistic Director at the Bush Theatre, Chiaroscuro is a bold reimagining of Scottish National Poet Jackie Kay's 1986 masterpiece. Linton directs the production, which utilises both live music and spoken word to create an explosive gig theatre event. Examining the experiences of women of colours across generations, the piece celebrates female identity from the 1980s to the present day. When Aisha, Yomi, Beth and Opal meet up for a dinner party, friendly conversation soon transcends into a heated debate surrounding what Yomi really think of Beth and Opal's relationship.

 

About Bush Theatre

London's essential theatre for new writing has been the first step into the big time for dozens of Britain's best playwrights. Challenging, disturbing and original works are often accepted by the Bush Theatre, and find their way to the West End. Moving from the room above O'Neill's pub in Shepherds Bush Green to the former Shepherd's Bush Library building on Uxbridge Road in 2011, the theatre acquired larger premises as well as a laid back bar/library and cafe (open Monday to Saturday, 8am to 11pm), worth a visit even if you're not here to watch a play.
