“SKEEN! is the debut play written by the young writer Tristan Fynn-Aiduenu and directed by the Joanna David Award Winner Ibrahim Shote.
A controversial and complex comedy-drama, dealing with how young people are represented in society. The play cleverly identifies complex issues that arises from the ensuing conflict between the parody of stereotype and wanting to be true to who you are. The talented London based production team are all under 25!
The play chronicles the dress rehearsal of several teens who aim to put on an explosive, entertaining end of year production for their Inner City Secondary school. They have decided to go against the bog-standard Christmas musical and the director, Astyrian “Ast” Elric, has chosen to adapt an internet novel (or “sket story” in his terms) into the most controversial provocative, ghetto ‘n’ grime play ever created. The director is pumped, the actors are not ready. The writer is on her way, tonight is the night…all hell is about to break loose!
“…Every yout in this play talks like they just bathed in weed fresh from yardie world… every girl in this play is some dutty hoe who gets mashed more times than sweet potato… Every man have to treat their girl like they’re lower than cow doo-doo… is this the truth? This is what living in London today’s all about?”
This production has been funded collaboratively by the Lambeth YM fund, supported by Dreamarts Youth Arts Charity and was created completely by youths aged 18-25.
WE CAN’T WAIT TO GO DOWN THERE TO SUPPORT AND CHECK OUT WHAT THESE AMAZING, AMBITIOUS YOUNG PEOPLE HAVE BEEN UP TO!
