THIS PERFORMANCE TOOK PLACE IN 2008 Directed by Gavin Marshall Yasmin Alibhai-Brown’s poignant and impassioned one-woman show about a Ugandan in Britain. Journalist and political commentator Yasmin Alibhai-Brown explores her life-long love of Shakespeare. Her experience of playing Juliet as a teenager in ‘60’s Uganda sent shockwaves through her family and helped shape the emotional and political landscape of her life. Provocative and powerful Yasmin Alibhai-Brown is a searing cultural presence and Nowhere to Belong captures with warmth and grit how theatre and Shakespeare helped change her life. Yasmin is well known for her regular radio and television broadcasts and columns in the Evening Standard and The Independent. Memorably, in 2003, Yasmin returned her MBE in protest against the war in Iraq. “Enlightening, funny and moving…beautifully performed” Colin Firth ”This show is a gem – any person of spirit would find themselves falling in love with Alibhai-Brown.” The Independent
