‘I am that mixed raced kid, like 50/50, on the fence, luke warm, in-between maybe. Trust me, around here I’m about as black as it goes…’.
Jazmin feels different. She doesn’t want to stay in the village. She doesn’t want to have a baby. She doesn’t want to laugh at racist jokes in the local pub. She’s got to get out.
Join us for Half Breed. Developed by Soho Theatre Writers’ Lab and Talawa Firsts, this is a partly autobiographical dark comedy about finding your voice. Shortlisted for the Soho Young Writers’ Tony Craze Award 2016 and Alfred Fagon Award (2016), Half Breed, written and performed by Natasha Marshall and directed by Miranda Cromwell, made its full-length play debut this year as part of Soho Theatre’s 19-show Edinburgh Festival Fringe season. Nominated for the upcoming 2017 UK Theatre Awards for Best New Play, Half Breed has captured acclaim, not least in part for Natasha’s breathtaking, heartbreakingly relevant and fiercely compelling performance.
November 01 to 04 – 7:30 pm to 8:30 pm
November 05, 2017 – 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm & 7:00 pm to 8:00 pm followed by a Q&A session at 8:15 PM
About the artist
About Soho THEATRE
Soho Theatre is London’s most vibrant venue for new theatre, comedy and cabaret. As entrepreneurial as it is innovative, over the last seven years under the joint leadership of Soho's Artistic Director Steve Marmion and Executive Director Mark Godfrey, the charity and social enterprise has almost trebled audiences and produced more work than ever before. The future vision is to ambitiously expand beyond Dean Street with an additional larger venue beyond central London, a digital and TV presence, as well as a strong national and international touring programme. Our digital comedy offering launched this summer with the first six episodes of stand-up performances recorded live in our iconic building. Featuring rising star comedians including Joel Dommett, Nish Kumar and Mae Martin as well as Richard Gadd and his award-winning Edinburgh show Monkey See Monkey Do, episodes of the Soho Theatre Live series broadcast across the UK this summer on Comedy Central and will soon be available for download from our website. Soho Theatre’s 19-show Edinburgh Festival Fringe programme this summer included new playsHalf Breed and Wild Bore, both which are transferring to London in autumn, as well as the acclaimed Fleabag, Girls, Richard Gadd and RashDash: Two Man Show as part of the British Council Showcase. Two Man Show is midway through a national tour with Jinkx Monsoon & Major Scales: Vaudevillians national tour about to commence. India’s Vir Das has just concluded a very successful UK tour of Boarding Das, Half Breed has commenced its tour in India, and Fleabag will tour Australia in 2018.
