Brilliance as standard
As promised this week I have done nothing productive, I did however attend a bloody excellent LGBTQ event at Sheffield’s Moor Theatre Delicatessen – The event opened with drama production Nine Lives written by Zodwa Nyoni and performed by Lladel Bryant. It’s a one man performance that depicts the life of a young Zimbabwean man, Ishmael, who has been outed as gay and has sought refuge in the UK. It shows the struggles – personal, legal and institutional that he faces as he works his way through the immigration system and shows his relationships with the people he meets, however fleetingly. The play is beautifully designed, centred around a suitcase of belongings and interspersed with evocative and descriptive sound effects. Lladel acts it wonderfully, he switches between accents, personalities, sorrow and humour seamlessly. If you get a chance to see it, I highly recommend it. The trailer can be viewed here.
