On 9th July, Lemon House Theatre held their first scratch night, Mixed Tape // Volume One, which supported writers in seeing their work staged through script-in-hand performances, with the chance to receive feedback from a live audience.
This first edition of Mixed Tape featured four short plays by emerging writers who identify as mixed race/ dual heritage, with each play responding to the idea of ‘Identity’ in different ways.
This night was about supporting artists to take risks and experiment with their work, with this showcase being a celebration of not just that work, but also of artists who are too often underrepresented on the stage.
The four pieces that were staged on the night were:
Meeting Malcolm X by Marcus Bernard
Baaba’s Footsteps by Susan Momoko Hingley
Wilfully Reckless by Cheryl May Ndione
Shahmaran by Shaadi Rad
