What’s your favourite play you’ve seen recently?
House That Will Not Stand by Marcus Gardley, Directed by Indhu Rubasingham. The poetry of the piece was beautifully heightened and the writer was not afraid to write a play of scale for black actors. All actors, especially actresses, were breathtaking and they truly embodied their characteristics and morals.
What’s your favourite colour?
