Almeida Questions

The Right to Write

Tickets £7 (£5 concs) 

production information

Who owns culture? Who has the right to tell certain stories? Is imagination enough?

A panel including Oil playwright Ella Hickson; Vava Tampa, writer, poet and founder of Save the Congo; theatre critic Matt Trueman; British-Chinese journalist, author and speaker Xīnrán Xue and Oil’s director Carrie Cracknell discuss cultural appropriation and the right to write.

Almeida Questions is an eclectic programme of pre-show discussions which consider some of the questions raised by the work on our stage. In each discussion, invited panellists dig into the key issues and ideas emerging from the show.
