10 Reasons Why

Written and directed by Nicole Botha

Music by Josh Tenor

“I look into your pupils as you teach me a life full of colour.”

What if the people of London got the voice they deserve?

We arrive on an estate to hear messages from the people that call it home. 10 letters from the community of London that aren’t usually listened to transformed into 10 poetic stories.

A cycle based on real letters. Letters asking for change. Letters that tell the stories of the people who make this city what it is. Spoken word and baselines fuse together and echo across the stage. A night of insight into ten lives.

10 Reasons Why is not a play. It is a platform and an opportunity to listen.
