NOT BLACK & WHITE

by Strictly Arts

United by love, broken by reality.

Remelle faces a constant battle to feel comfortable in her own skin. Her family want her to be proud of her heritage but she hasn’t become a successful business woman by flaunting her Jamaican roots. Now life’s pressures are starting to get to her, but are they all real?

Not Black and White explores the multiple pressures, both real and perceived, placed on women of colour through the eyes of a young woman trying – or not trying – for a baby. This new work from the creative team behind last year’s sell out Fringe hit Freeman takes on the issues of colourism, ageism, interracial relationships, being a woman in the workplace and the pressures on women to have children – and pressures from family relating to home culture.
