•  Provok’d: A Restoration

Guildhall/Barbican, 2019

~ A theatre piece concieved, devised and written by Jamie Bradley with GSMD actors

As a group of actors come together to rehearse period scenes, a rising sense of anarchy bubbles up as they question which stories deserve to be retold.

Restoration Comedy collides with original rap and hip hop, challenging the parallels between a vicious and vibrant moment in theatrical history and a contemporary questioning of sexuality, gender politics and race.
