“It’s the words buried in the casket of your mouth that haunt you.”
This Showcase features the world premiere of a new play by multi award-winning Lorna French. Veritas is set in 1890s Liverpool, where four Black women – anti-lynching campaigner Ida B Wells, singer Sannie Koopman, football-player Emma Clarke and her sister Jane – find each other unlikely allies. Redbrick is a vibrant and exciting play set on a Friday night in Edmonton, where news has rocked the community.
Lorna French has twice won the Alfred Fagon Award and returns to JST after writing Sappho in 15 Heroines. She is joined by Creative Associate Theresa Pine as Assistant Director, and guests including director Nyasha Gudo and actor Deb Tracey. Lorna is mentoring Creative Associate Amma-Afi Osei, writer and performer of Redbrick, which is directed by Darren Sinnott.
