At Theatre Peckham we are building a representative and inclusive society where everyone can participate in, lead, work in, and enjoy creativity and culture. This fundraiser will enable Theatre Peckham to continue supporting young people from the local community through our Academy and Young Peckham training programmes as well as supporting local artists as we emerge from the lockdown. We are dedicated to creating a culture of inclusivity and diversity which will ripple through the sector to be more representative.
Six authors. One diversity award for literature. A green room full of egos, secrets, disappointments and desperation. Who will reveal their true colours first?
A laugh-out-loud comedy, The Green Room presents a timely and clear-eyed exploration of the publishing industry, and the myriad of obstacles new and established writers of colour face while trying to carve out a career that matters.
Written by award winning authors Yvvette Edwards and Irenosen Okojie, produced by award-winning author and playwright Alex Wheatle MBE 'co-produced by Joy Francis (Words of Colour), Suzann McLean (Theatre Peckham) and directed by Roy Alexander Weise MBE.
