J'ouvert

Synopsis

“What people you know can party through all of the earth’s elements?” 2017. Carnival is here. The streets of Notting Hill are alive with history and amidst the soca, sequins, and endless feathers, Jade and Nadine are fighting for space in a world that should be theirs. A timely echo of Caribbean resistance across centuries, J’OUVERT is a joyful and fearless story of two best friends, battling to preserve tradition in a society where women’s bodies are frequently under threat.

J’OUVERT marks the debut play of James Tait Black Award-winner Yasmin Joseph and directorial debut of actor Rebekah Murrell (Nine Night), coming together with Annice Boparai (Trojan Horse), Gabrielle Brooks (Twelfth Night), Sapphire Joy (Our Country’s Good) and DJ Zuyane Russell to tell this epic story at the Harold Pinter Theatre.
