Desert Boy

Desert Boy
Soldier Boy, a troubled teenage hoody, stumbles onto a muddy Deptford beach with a knife in his belly. His cries are heard by the mysterious Desert Man, from a village in the Sahara, outside Timbuktu. Through a magical odyssey we travel back through the sands of time to the 1700s, where Desert Man is kidnapped, shackled and transported across Africa and the Atlantic to an American plantation and beyond. This is just the start of an amazing journey around the world where revelations along the way change both man and boy forever. an a cappella musical with story-telling and song woven seamlessly together into an epic musical Drama.

Moj Of the Antarctic

Synopsis:
Few performers could carry a one-woman devised show which takes a picaresque heroine from Negro slavery in the Deep South to whale hunting near the South Pole - oh, and queers recorded history, affectionately burlesques the great white writer, and protests against ice cap meltdown en route. But Mojisola adebayo is that woman: with her long limbs, elastic countenance, and a rangy voicebox (which projects elderly Baptist preachers and hopeful young maidens with an equally spooky clarity) she's as subtle and supple as a whole ensemble.
