“I don’t know what to imagine now.”
Kit, Emery and Tracy meet just before their school reunion, but a simple search for shoes quickly spirals into an existential event that fractures their personal identities.
Quick. Wild. Slow. Sad. Soft. Sharp. A question mark. We’ll Be Who We Are is perhaps about how perception constructs reality, maybe about escaping your past, and possibly about absurd social norms that only make sense if you squint.
It’s definitely a singular theatrical experience that revels in the strange. A plant-filled play that embraces quiet tenderness and envelops you in its playful logic.
Shortlisted for the 2020 Women’s Prize for Playwriting, Naomi Obeng’s first full-length play conjures a vibrant, precarious, earthy ecosystem – a radical play about labels and outsiders. Directed by Júlia Levai, produced by WoLab, whose string of five-star hits include: For a Palestinian, RAINER & ENG-ER-LAND.
