Tambo and Bones are stuck in a minstrel show

It's hard to know what's real when you're stuck in a minstrel show

Their escape plan: get out, get rich, get even

A daring theatrical exploration of the intersection of race, capitalism and performance, Tambo & Bones laughs through our past, blows the roof off our present, and imagines an explosive future for our world and for theatre

Commended in the 2019 Bruntwood Prize for Playwriting, first performed in a co-production between Playwrights Horizons, New York City, and Center Theatre Group, Los Angeles, in 2022, it has its UK premiere at the Theatre Royal Stratford East, London in June 2023
