Moreblessing Maturure: Book Me In

Date: 7 Jan 2018

Actor, activist and playwright Moreblessing Maturure is part of the Sydney Theatre Company’s Emerging Writers Group and ATYP’s Fresh Ink program. Her picks for 2018 reflect her passion for change and desire to see diversity on stage.

Barber Shop Chronicles

“I’ve been binge reading and interview watching British African Playwrights for months and to be able to see this play is gonna be ridiculously fulfilling! Hopefully, Inua Ellams will be able to get his visa situation sorted out so he can come with the show.”

Barber Shop Chronicles plays at the Seymour Centre, January 18-28

The Book of Mormon

“This has been on my ‘must-see’ list for the longest time! A comic musical that teeters on that line of inappropriate with its critique of religion, saviour complexes and the West’s relationship with ‘Africa. I’m most looking forward to meeting a wealth of black artists from the stage and in the foyers.”

The Book of Mormon plays at the Sydney Lyric Theatre from February 28

The Season
“Having heard incredible things about this show last year, I’m excited to see it for myself. With an incredible team of First Nations artists at varying levels of this production, supporting work by Indigenous Artists and Artists of Colour is one of my main goals of the year. As I’m also writing my own work this year, watching large ensemble pieces about non-Anglo families will no doubt show me what’s possible.”

The Season plays at the Seymour Centre, September 25-29
