As part of our #SheCAN initiative to get more Black women and WOC to experience theatre who may not always find it affordable or accessible or who may want to work in the theatre, we have teamed up with the National Theatre to giveaway two free tickets for the much anticipated Three Sisters starring Sarah Niles, Natalie Simpson and Rachael Ofori, by the award winning Director Inua Ellams on December 10th which will be the press night.
Following his smash-hit Barber Shop Chronicles, Ellams returns to the National Theatre with this heartbreaking retelling, directed by Nadia Fall (Home, Dara).
1967, on the brink of the Biafran Civil War. Lolo, Nne Chukwu and Udo are grieving the loss of their father. Months before, two ruthless military coups plunged the country into chaos. Fuelled by foreign intervention, the conflict encroaches on their provincial village, and the sisters long to return to their former home in Lagos. STARS: Sarah Niles, Natalie Simpson and Rachael Ofori. Opens 3rd December
#SheCAN aims to create opportunities and experiences for women age 18+ (there is no age restrictions with free tickets) within the creative industries, from mentoring to jobs to training. .
