MY WHITE BEST FRIEND

MY WHITE BEST FRIEND

MY WHITE BEST FRIEND

If you could say what you’re really thinking, right now, to the people that need to hear it, what would you say?

Writer Rachel De-Lahay and director Milli Bhatia commissioned ten writers to pen letters that say the unsaid, for a new, online version of their festival My White Best Friend (and Other Letters Left Unsaid).

Produced by Tobi Kyeremateng with support by the Royal Court Theatre, the online festival ran for a week in July 2020 with a pre-recorded letter by Rachel De-Lahay read each night alongside two letters by some of the most exciting voices in the UK read live.

Writers included Amma Asante, Elliot Barnes-Worrell, Ryan Calais Cameron, Clint Dyer, Afua Hirsch, Yasmin Joseph, Tife Kusoro, Lettie Precious, Campbell X and Rachael Young.

Performers included Adelayo Adedayo, Ines De Clercq, Anne-Marie Duff, Paapa Essiedu, Martina Laird, Alex Lawther, Neil Maskell, Sinead Matthews, Lucian Msamati, Rosamund Pike and Danielle Vitalis.
