TARA presents Yasmin Alibhai - Brown in
Directed By Gavin Marshall
‘How was I to know that a play, a school play… would end in an almighty scandal which would abruptly take me off the boards forever? Until now that is.’
Playing Juliet in 60s Uganda sent shockwaves through Yasmin’s family...
Nowhere to Belong captures with warmth and grit how theatre and Shakespeare changed her life.
Yasmin is well known for her regular radio and television broadcasts and columns in the Evening Standard and The Independent.
Developed with the RSC, her poignant and impassioned one-woman show explores the challenges of being Asian in Uganda and Ugandan in Britain.
“Enlightening, funny and moving…beautifully performed”
