Kerri Mclean which is about hair and being mixed race in the UK today
TOURING London and South East 10th April -3rd May 2014
Snakes and Ladders is a fast and funny family tale about three mixed race sisters and their relationship to their hair, inspired from real life stories collected from Black hairdressers in the South East of England in the Positive Hair Day project.
Award winning actress Cathy Tyson (whose film and TV credits include Mona Lisa and Band of Gold) joins a forces with a creative team made up of BBC writer Sarah Naomi Lee and director Kerri Mclean who recently was awarded an "overall excellence award" in the New York International Festival 2013.
Amma can't bear to relax, Kim loves being the one "blessed" with "good hair" and Sista is allergic to all forms of family life, Beyoncé and any Timotei advert.
Each sister knows her place, that is until Simone comes along and suddenly no one knows who they are any more.
Think Mike Leigh meets jerk chicken, this play will make you both laugh and cry, a must see.
“Sarah Naomi Lee's writing is fresh, buoyant, and touching” - Financial Times
