Bite Your Tongue | Hackney Showroom | 1 & 2 September | 7.30pm (3pm on 2 September) | £8/5

We loved this story blurb for Talawa’s emerging company’s new work so we decided to add it below in its entirety. Hurry to get your ticket as they’ve just added a matinee after the other performances SOLD OUT.

Enough is enough!

How long can we do nothing?

How long can we bite our tongues?

In a city fracturing under the weight of hate and fear, a movement grows.

A new tower can be spotted on the skyline, nestled in between the glittering symbols of the city’s wealth and power.

Built by different hands.

Occupied by different bodies.

About 

I am Joint Editor at To Do List. I like: nice pubs, film marathons, not doing real marathons, bad comedy, plays/musicals with shorter second halves, and the Oxford comma.
