The Big House in Islington works with care leavers and it has produced some seriously great shows including Phoenix and Bullet Tongue. If what you want is authenticity then this company will deliver it big time with raw, angry and vibrant shows that uncover worlds unseen beneath London’s shiny surface. If you enjoyed the gig theatre Edinburgh hit, Electrolyte, this comes from the same writer, James Meteyard, and music is supplied by The Last Skeptik who worked on Superhoe at the Royal Court. This should be a gripping evening exploring what forgiveness really looks like.
Due to popular demand The Big House are bringing Redemption back for a limited run at their Islington venue. The production, supported by 42 Management, will see Offie nominated Renaya Dennis, reprise the role of Maz. In a time of accusation and outrage, what does forgiveness look like? The path to Redemption is hard to see, and even harder to walk. We follow explosive Maz and her truth-telling bars as she rails at the world and runs from a life in care. Then she meets Tayo, a gentle soul with silky smooth vocal folds, seeking a place to belong. He’s soul, she’s grime, and the fusion is sublime. Together they take the first steps of their musical career, but can they hold onto each other when promised the bright lights of success? Redemption is a powerful new play-with-music exploring family and forgiveness.
