Part of The Party Somewhere Else Festival

The Party Somewhere Else throw parties for ALL, full of theatre, arts and inspiration for ALL, and we’d love you to join the conversation.

This is your chance to see exciting new performances in development, meet the women that created them, and get involved in discussions about the voices that want to be heard, the stories that need to be told, and the audiences who are ready to listen.

Watch, mingle, listen, laugh, and cry if you want to.

Performances include: an adaptation of an Austen novel with pop music, empire lines, and lots of rain sound effects; a play about five young women from London, and their journeys to self-love and celebration of themselves; and the first chance to see new work from the award-winning writer of Ladykiller!

PLUS! A talk from Oyinkansole Adebayo – the founder of Niyo Enterprise, an organisation that
uses creative tools such as innovative afro-hair for female economic empowerment.

Come join the Party!

IMPORTANT: This event is split into two halves and only 40 free tickets are available for each half. You are welcome to book tickets for and attend both.

If you book a ticket and can no longer attend, please let us know so we can pass your ticket onto someone else. We want to make this event as accessible for as many people as possible so please help us make sure no-one misses out.

“The best version of You. What even IS that?”

PYNEAPPLE – The SPYCE Collective

“The best version of you? What even is that?”
When you’re shown that you’re Other, accepting yourself can be difficult.
This debut play from The SPYCE Collective is about five young women from London, and their journeys to self-love and celebration of themselves.

Erycah, Jasmyn, Lauryn, Maya and Raye are battling against stereotypes of themselves, but somehow when they come together, it’s like therapy. In an exploration of beauty, sexuality and femininity, the women share their stories of discovery.

“An incredible and honest depiction of modern female BAME life.”

The SPYCE Collective is committed to creating, developing and producing challenging theatre for diverse
audiences. The collective aim to explore a variety of issues ranging from those specific to the black female experience to universal themes such as love, sexuality and mental health. They strive to create work that provides honest representations and positively dismantles stereotypes about black women.

Guest Speaker: Oyinkansole Adebayo
