Does discovering your identity mean picking a side? A one-woman play presented by Lighthouse, Poole & Black Theatre Live
Mon 16 & Tues 17 July, 7.30pm
Layla McKinnon is days away from saying 'I do'. But she's been digging and she's found something. Already having the same surname as her fiancé used to be just a funny coincidence but now it threatens to drive them apart.
What do you do when you discover that your enslaved ancestors were owned by your fiancé's? Piecing together her family tree, Layla tries to hold onto her best friend and her husband-to-be and find out who she is and where she fits in. This bold new solo show asks if the difficulties of the past will always pose a threat to the future and if discovering your identity means picking a side. Pre-wedding jitters is an understatement.
…A clever play with an assured and compelling performance from McIntosh…
