Tristan Bates Theatre

Never Forget


by Kaleya Baxe 

20th & 21st December 




Part of the John Thaw Initiative 

Curated by Blacktress UK 



Never Forget is based on interviews between writer Kaleya Baxe and her father, Garcia Baxe, about his mother and homeland. The play follows Marta, a normal young girl navigating growing up in colonised Angola. Faced with a decision between her home and family, or a scholarship from the missionary school that could introduce her to a new world and future, no decision seems like the right one. 

Using the art of storytelling, music and movement, we bring you the story of a real family.
