A mouse, a wake and a trendy restaurant – three short plays in Food For Thought

A trio of micro plays commissioned for our Blueprint Festival of new ideas are all based on one theme, Food For Thought, but they could not be more different. Festival-goers can see script-in-hand performances of the three 20-minute plays that feature a mouse, a wake and a trendy restaurant in one festival event. The programme, curated by Danielle Kassaraté (Associate Director Talent Development) and playwright Somebody Jones, includes discussion time after each play when the audience is invited to join the conversation about the work with the creative team and actors. Food For Thought is part of our ongoing mission to encourage new voices into the building and develop new and local talent, particularly from the Global Majority. The first play in the programme is There’s a Mouse in the Kitchen, written by Cal-I Jonel and directed by George Morgan. It looks at the relationship of an anxious student with a rodent phobia and his sporty older brother, played by Owen Chaponda and Dauda Ladejobi. In Antoinette Jackman’s Like My Skin and Blister secrets are revealed between two cousins in the kitchen after a family funeral. Sharon Rose and Deborah Imhogiemhe play the two young women and Britny Virginia Albert directs. Finger Food by Somebody Jones and directed by Charleen Qwaye is a thriller set in a trendy restaurant, where Adam Karim and Mia Lysandrou are meeting to get their stories straight about their missing friend   Food for Thought is playing 21 & 23 September at 3 pm in the Learning Space.
