tiata fahodzi produces theatre that is fearless for a Britain of today; rich with languages, races, cultures and identities.
tiata fahodzi, the UK’s leading British African heritage contemporary theatre company, presents a new season of creative initiatives, appointments and productions designed to support and invest in the future of Black British artists, in celebration of its 25th anniversary.
Founded in September 1997 by playwright and director Femi Elufowoju Jr and now under the direction of its fourth Artistic Director, playwright and director, Chinonyerem Odimba, this milestone year named ‘Year of the Artist’ marks the beginning of a new chapter in the Arts Council England National Portfolio Organisation’s history.
We make theatre that looks around and looks forward, with a mission to tell contemporary stories in modern and innovative ways, celebrating characters and audiences defined not by their diversity, but by their humanity.
cheeky little brown, by the Papatango Prize-winning playwright Nkenna Akunna, is a failed night out, a musical, a show about heartbreak and queerness, taking place on a journey through the city Lady calls home.
