WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Congo Square Theatre Company presents Elmina's Kitchen. Written by Kwame Kwei Armah, the play is a captivating and authentic contribution to World Theatre examining the inheritance of British black youth of the twenty first century, focusing on three generations of black men. Elmina's Kitchen is an intense portrayal of a difficult father-son relationship set in a West Indian café in London's Hackney. The café is aptly named after Elmina's Castle, a slave prison on Africa's Ghanaian coast where African men were held before being shipped to the West Indies or the Americas. Elmina's Kitchen was nominated for a Laurence Olivier Award for Best New Play (2003) and won the Evening Standard's Charles Wintour Most Promising Playwright Award 2003. Directed by Founding Artistic Director, Derrick Sanders, this production features ensemble members Anthony Irons and Ann Joseph Douglas. To Purchase Group Tickets: By Phone: 773-296-1108
