Slickly produced pieces tackle important issues ”
The Stage

When reports highlighted a low Covid-19 vaccine take up within the Black British community, it prompted conflicting feelings amongst writers Tonderai, Maheni and Isaac.

Their creative result is three urgent monologues about being black in these pandemic times and the conversations needed to navigate the emerging narratives.

Blaccine: First Dose takes listeners on a personal journey touching on complex realities through a series of three monologues. Told with sincerity and curiosity, this radically honest reflection is followed by a post-show discussion with the writers.

Blaccine: First Dose will be broadcast on Thursday 12, 19 and 26 January 2023 at 7pm, on Pitlochry Festival Theatre’s Sound Stage (Online).

Slickly produced pieces tackle important issues

The Stage

Three monologues, told from a Black British perspective, tackle subjects ranging from distrust of the medical system to the gentrification of Brixton

The Guardian

Incorporating comments from Black people taken in interviews on the streets of Brixton, the piece is a thought-provoking and captivating audio drama.

The National

★ ★ ★ ★
They are so intriguing and significant that you can’t help but continue to listen in.

West End Best Friend

It is this feeling of disconnection – from community, from country – that underpins the Blaccine monologues.

The Reviews Hub

Sharing their roots within Stockroom, the triptych of Maheni Arthur, Tonderai Munyevu (who also directs), and Isaac Tomiczek work with co-director Debbie Hannan to stitch together experiences spanning from 2020 to today and how the pandemic solidified, strengthened, and spotlights the barriers already drawn: of class, of discrimination, of corruption, and of institutional racism and the widening gap.
