i stopped…when recommended by Lyn Gardner in Stagedoor (linked here)




My short play Infomania, directed by Simona Hughes.

Just because something’s small doesn’t mean it can’t be beautiful. Or experimental, or poignant or thought provoking. For proof of this, look to the Miniaturists, a regularly staged event that celebrates the possibilities of the short play… As a forum for writers to push themselves to new places, the Miniaturists is ideal, and from the audience’s perspective it makes for an exciting and memorably different theatre experience. – Natasha Tripney

For a Black Girl – Written by Nicole Acquah (VAULT Festival 2018)

I wrote a play called ‘For a Black Girl’. It’s a brutally honest exploration of the Black British experience in the UK.

For a Black Girl made the ‘Top 10 shows to see at VAULT’ as recommended by The Guardian. It was also listed in WhatsonStage and The Upcoming.

“A vital and vibrant show”

The Stage


“A cleverly written and passionately performed bombardment”

Theatre Bubble


“A flash of brilliance. The… show is brutal, honest and crafted with real skill.”

For a Black Girl (15th March, Camden People’s Theatre)

I wrote a semi-autobiographical play which explores the lives and experiences of BAME (particularly female BAME) citizens in the UK.

After a hugely successful run at London’s biggest arts festival, the show is now also part of SPRINT Festival 2018.

Come join us at Camden People’s Theatre this March! >

Identity – Facilitated by Lulu Pollice (2017)

This was a project which joined a small group of facilitators, asylum seekers, and artists for a day of exploration, discussions on identity and expressing our home and cultures.

My role was as an artist and I was given one hour to create art based on the events of the day. I created a spoken word poem (combined with movement), which was filmed and will be showcased at BFI cinema 18th November 2017.

It was a very illuminating day, and above all else, enjoyable! It was great to meet people from all over the world, hear their stories and even share in some food together. When I can I will share the finished film with you.


Going It Alone (2017)

Playwright: Paula Davis

Director: Christina Bulford
