Is God Is tickets
A bold, genre-mixing revenge taleAleshea Harris’ award-winning revenge play makes its UK premiere. Mixing genres and styles, this compelling story of vengeance and sisterhood runs at the Royal Court Theatre.
21 year old twins Racine and Anaia journey from the Dirty South to the Californian desert after receiving a letter from their presumed-dead mother. Arriving at a yellow house with teal shutters, they’re determined to avenge her past.
Aleshea Harris’ acclaimed play is a compelling and unique cross-genre piece, mixing the fury of mythological revenge narratives with Afropunk, Spaghetti Western and hip-hop. It won the 2018 Obie Awards for Playwriting, Directing and Performance after a season at New York’s Soho Rep, and in London is directed by Royal Court Associate Ola Ince.
This modern myth about sisters seeking vengeance is a darkly funny and bold new play. Be one of the first UK audiences to watch it with Is God Is tickets at the Royal Court Theatre.
