Soho Theatre and Talawa Theatre Company present

HALF BREED

  • Written and performed by Natasha Marshall. Directed by Miranda Cromwell.
  • 31 May 2018 - 2 June 2018
  • The Studio

‘I am that mixed raced kid, like 50/50, on the fence, luke warm, in-between maybe. Trust me, around here I’m about as black as it goes…’

Jazmin feels different. She doesn’t want to stay in the village. She doesn’t want to have a baby. She doesn’t want to laugh at racist jokes in the local pub. She’s got to get out.

A partly autobiographical dark comedy about finding your voice. Written and performed by Alfred Fagon Award shortlisted writer Tash Marshall.

  • ★★★★ “ ... descriptive, often angry, wrapping the room in language ... it's the way Marshall tells it that captures you. Marshall ... holds our attention: she’s got something special about her, almost a sort of wildness. I think she’s going to be a star.” The Times

    ★★★★ "Marshall, directed by Miranda Cromwell, moves fluidly between prose and everyday rhythms of speech as she delineates her characters, and gives an impassioned performance ... it's funny and gripping, and its emotional punch feels very real." The Evening Standard

    "Natasha Marshall’s debut show, which she also performs solo, is a little cracker: full of fierce wit and neat observations about village life and what being a best mate really means." Lyn Gardner, The Guardian

    ★★★★★ "Natasha Marshall gives a blistering solo performance that hits the mark in every aspect" Critically Speaking

    ★★★★½ " ... compelling and impressive performance from Natasha Marshall ... slick, clear and ... humorous transitions. The writing is excellent ..." To Do List (Edinburgh)

    ★★★★ " ... powerful piece ... marks Natasha Marshall and her director Miranda Cromwell as ones to watch." British Theatre Guide
