Shadow In Different Shades is a new play by writer Oladipo Agboluaje, developed in partnership with Utopia Theatre Company.
Inspired by Moji Kareem’s life and that of her mother and daughter, the piece deals with what it is like to be a daughter and a mother; a story of migration an shifting identity. ‘Shadow In Different Shades’ is a compelling and thought-provoking tale of dreams and broken promises, of hope, optimism and resilience in the face of harrowing circumstances. The play will address a whole range of issues including; love, loss, struggle with self and the relationship between religion and mental health, the position of women in society, religious freedom, miscarriage and female genital mutilation. Nigerian music will play a vital role in the play.
