Following its sold-out run at the Bush Theatre and critical acclaim in the West End, Arinzé Kene’s MISTY ‘The most important cultural experience in British theatre right now’ (BBC), has extended its run at London’s Trafalgar Studios. Originally due to end on 20th October, the production will now play until 17 November and we highly recommend booking tickets to see this important theatrical master piece, that is relevant to those living in an increasingly gentrified London today.
Through a blend of theatre, gig and performance poetry, Arinzé delivers an epic, heartfelt and playful exploration of creative freedom, set against a pulsating vision of modern London. Misty is directed by Bush Theatre Associate Director Omar Elerian (NASSIM, One Cold Dark Night, Islands) and features a spectacular original musical score performed live during the show.
The star of the show and ‘Screen International UK Star of Tomorrow’, actor and writer Arinzé Kene is known for his theatrical work in ‘good dog’, which tiata fahodzi theatre company toured throughout the UK in 2017, God’s Property, a co-production with Talawa, which ran at Soho Theatre in 2013 and Little Baby Jesus, directed by Che Walker. He was also named ‘Most Promising Playwright’ at the Off West End Theatre Awards for Estate Walls in 2011, which was also nominated for Best New Play. With many strings to his bow Arinzé’s work spans across theatre, on-screen and in film, with his original feature film, Seekers, currently in development. You can also catch him in the BBC’s new thriller, Informer and taking the lead role opposite Micaela Cole in Netflix’s acquired feature film, Been So Long.
