Eve and Cain

An honest dialogue about communication disabilities

Gateway Arts presents,

A choreopoem written and directed by Sonny Nwachukwu 

In ‘Eve and Cain’ we follow the journey of a mother and son as they transcend through understanding the intersectionalities of being black, gay and disabled in today’s world society and explore the complexities of trying to understand these aspects of identity.

‘Eve and Cain’ is an honest dialogue about stammering and offers a rare exploration of communication disabilities.


This research and development is supported by Queen’s Theatre Hornchurch, Stamma, Graeae and was supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.

Attendance is free and guests are welcome to book more than one ticket.
