Abeni is new to college. She’s putting purple braids in Jasmine’s hair and giving her ‘the talk’, opening Jasmine’s mind to new ways of seeing the world - and the world seeing both of them.

A new play by Olivia Hannah, about fitting in and standing out.

Longlisted for the Alfred Fagon Award 2018.
