Meanwhile check out Adura Onashile's fabulous new play - EXPENSIVE SHIT

 

Adura Onashile, Scottish Theatre Producers and Soho Theatre present
Expensive Shit

by Adura Onashile

4 - 22 Apr Soho Theatre  21 Dean Street London W1D 3NE

sohotheatre.com/whats-on/expensive


‘A heart-rending and twisted, yet laugh-out-loud funny triumph.’
★★★★★  ToDoList
          

The story of a nightclub toilet attendant in a fictional club based on the Shimmy Club in Glasgow. Her conflicted journey is spliced with flashbacks to the toilets of the Shrine nightclub in Lagos, Nigeria, where her younger self dreams of becoming a dancer in the revolutionary band of the late Nigerian musician, Fela Kuti.

https://youtu.be/bmXvpuseXWU

 

 Adura is our inspirational friend, multi talented artist and long time ally who was a crucial part of our Shrine Synchrosystem sessions , club nights, overseas tours and theatrical forays. These days she's an award winning actor and playwright and there ain't no stopping she... Expensive Shit was WINNER: 2016 FRINGE FIRST AWARD
........


One toilet attendant. Two sets of toilets. Worlds apart.

In the toilets of the Shrine nightclub in Lagos, young dancer Tolu dreams of being picked to join the revolutionary band of musician Fela Kuti.

Now, decades later, she’s a toilet attendant in a Glasgow nightclub, servicing drunken revelers and taking tips from men looking for a cheap thrill.

But all that glitters isn’t gold and when a line is crossed Tolu must choose between truth and power.

An all female Black cast star in the Fringe First award winning play full of wry humour and euphoric dance. Splicing the story of the Shimmy club – prosecuted in 2013 for allowing male patrons to watch the women’s toilets through a ‘spy mirror’ – with flashbacks to the infamous Shrine nightclub in 1980s Lagos, this is an Afrobeat-filled exploration of freedom, power and exploitation.
