THURSDAY, 5 APRIL @ DRAMA CENTRE
Thick Beats for Good Girls
by Checkpoint Theatre
"THICK BEATS FOR GOOD GIRLS is the electrifying collaboration between performance-poet Pooja Nansi and playwright Jessica Bellamy, who ask a ton of questions about the balancing act that is being a woman, an ethnic or religious minority and-God forbid-a hip-hop enthusiast."
We're looking forward to this fresher than fresh, coming-of-age theatre piece about two girls finding a sense of belonging while rapping along to lyrics your mom wouldn't approve of. Hip Hop and theatre? We're in.
