I'm a bit tired.
Tired of biting my tongue.
Bored of letting things slide.
I'm fed up with not calling things out.
Tash is a queer Black woman. She's also silenced, a lot.
If it's not by her well-meaning yet homophobic Jamaican aunties, then it's by her equally well-meaning yet racist queer friends. And let's not get started on the white feminists...
Things will change soon, though. She's taking cues from the master of speaking their mind – Kanye West. What could go wrong?
Everything I Am is a hilarious and captivating exploration of identity, power and celebrity worship.
Written and performed by Natasha Simone
Directed by Lynette Linton
Co-produced by Rikki Beadle-Blair
Dramaturgy by John R. Gordon
Developed on Starting Blocks at CPT, this is a preview performance ahead of the full production in Spring 2019.
“British theatre would be completely stymied without tiny, under-resourced venues such as CPT, which are a critical part of the theatre ecology.”
