Eight

Eight compelling monologues offering a state-of-the-nation group portrait for the stage. From Millie, the jolly hockeysticks sex worker who mourns the loss of the good old British class system, to Miles, a 7/7 survivor, and Danny, an ex-squaddie who makes friends in morgues. Eight looks at what has happened to a generation that has grown up in a world where everything has become acceptable.

British-born Nigerian awardwinning director and founder of Utopia Theatre, Mojisola Elufowoju, began her directing career at York Theatre Royal. She is passionate about the growth and development of ethnic minorities in the theatre industry and uses African storytelling to advance education, health and wellbeing of people from all backgrounds and nationalities. She is a recipient of a 2017 Opera Awards Foundation bursary and is currently a guest director at the London Academy of Dramatic Arts. She was a staff director at The National Theatre, working alongside Nadia Fall on Three Sisters by Inua Ellams.
