We first met Azuka through New Page, The Other Room's open submission and community engagment programme. Azuka submitted an important and timely play that chimed with our current context here at The Other Room. We are eager to further develop her play and we are hopeful to share it with you, our audience, very soon.
“I’m incredibly excited to work with The Other Room Theatre and community groups, I’ve no doubt it will be an invaluable opportunity and I’m really looking forward to sharing and developing the piece with people directly affected by the themes in my play”. - Azuka
