DOMINOES

THEATRE: DOMINOES (STRATFORD CIRCUS ARTS CENTRE, LONDON)

“Mixed race history teacher Layla McKinnon is days away from saying ‘I do’ to Andy McKinnon. Already having the same surname as her fiancé used to be just a funny coincidence but now it threatens to drive them apart. Piecing together her family tree, she tries to hold onto her best friend and her husband-to-be and find out who she is and where she fits in. Written and performed by Phoebe McIntosh, this bold new solo show asks if the difficulties of the past will always pose a threat to the future and if discovering your identity means picking a side. Directed by Stephen Wrentmore. Dominoes is a pilot tour between Black Theatre Live and the Lighthouse Poole, supporting emerging Black, Asian Minority Ethnic talent on tour.”
