"The hot topics of race and cultural stereotyping fizz and dart about this lively and innovative piece of work… surely destined to be a big popular hit." —Evening Standard
"Inventive, subversive, slightly surreal… it's bracing to see the question of who gets to tell stories – and how they might be circumscribed – tackled head-on here, with wit, exuberance and visual flair." —Time Out
An epic, lyrical journey through the pulsating heart and underground soul of inner-city London.
Arinzé Kene's Misty is an inventive blend of gig theatre, spoken word, live art and direct address, confronting the assumptions and expectations underpinning the act of telling a story.
Misty premiered at the Bush Theatre, London, in 2018, performed by the author and directed by Omar Elerian. It transferred to the Trafalgar Studios in the West End in September 2018.
Misty won Best Performance Piece at the 2019 Off-West End Awards.
