A new on demand theatre season continues this month with powerful and timely production, In Search of a White Identity.
This new digital show is part of a season of on demand theatre from The Actors Centre. In Search of a White Identity interrogates race, class and masculinity as it tells the story of two men forced to face the complexity of their upbringing.
Patrick and Mickey grew up together, but now find themselves on opposing sides. Detained in the same police cell having been arrested at the same protest.
This powerful new production addresses urgent and timely issues as Patrick and Mickey try to learn to understand each other.
In Search of a White Identity introduces writer-performer Cliffordkuju Henry (Top Boy; Dizzee Rascal’s Money Right) as Patrick and Drew Edwards (The Trial of Christine Keeler; Suffragette) as Mickey.
Originally part of The Actors Centre’s Working Class Season curated by Actor Awareness in 2019, the piece has been re-envisioned in the light of 2020, and casts a prophetic eye over the urgent matters of today.
From 7.30pm on 27th November 2020, when the production goes live, you will be able to pay to watch the play from the comfort of your sofa. You’ll receive a password so you can access the production for 48 hours.
