Online scratch performance, 5pm

Full details and free booking via Eventbrite

Leah embarks on a journey of self-discovery, uncovering painful family secrets and reconciling her multiple identities.

Leah is a Londoner, in her 30s, and a highly successful woman working in tech. When faced with a life-changing moment, she embarks on a journey of self-discovery, uncovering painful family secrets and reconciling her multiple identities as a Black, British woman in 2021 who has lived through a genocide.

‘I am Leah’ is created by Jo Ingabire Moys, Laila Sumpton and Maja Milatovic-Ovadia, and is inspired by the stories of survivors of the 1994 Genocide Against the Tutsi in Rwanda.

The ‘I am Leah’ scratch performance will feature an introduction from the directors Jo Ingabire Moys and Maja Milatovic Ovadia, a sharing of the live filmed performance and then a live Q&A with the cast and crew.

This scratch performance is funded by Arts Council England.
