Nine Lives

Nine Lives

Friday 6th November, 7.30pm

Upstairs at The Western, 70 Western Road Leicester LE3 0GA

Leeds Studio in association with West Yorkshire Playhouse presents Nine Lives by Zodwa Nyoni, playing in Leicester as part of the Platforma Festival.

Ishmael is seeking a new life. He knows of villages and the sound of a gun. But he doesn’t know Burnsall Heights Estate. He doesn’t know Armley, the place where they have dispersed him to. He is waiting for his papers. He is waiting for his new life to begin amongst these strangers. Through Ismael’s eyes we see the lives of residents of Armley, new and old.

Written by Zimbabwean-born playwright and poet Zodwa Nyoni, directed by Alex Chisholm and performed by Lladel Bryant.
