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”
“A cleverly written and passionately performed bombardment”
“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! > https://www.cptheatre.co.uk/production/for-a-black-girl/
The play is being brought to life by This Is It Theatre Company – a company of fantastically talented people, all of whom I love dearly.
We’ve got some exciting venues lined up, so give us a follow on our twitter: For a Black Girl for further details!

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)
I had the pleasure of performing in a new writing night in ‘Going it Alone’ by Paula Davis, a raw and brave story about homelessness and female friendship.
