The playwright, whose play Iya-Ile (The First Wife) won the 2009 Alfred Fagon Award and was nominated for an Olivier Award this year, talks to Steven Luckie about current work, and responds to recent newspaper criticism about the ‘ghetto mentality’ in Black British theatre.

Lots of black plays that are set in urban areas, but you also have to look at the themes of those plays. The true content of a play is the theme.

People with hearing problems are also interested in getting to know what people are saying.
Thank you.
