Kenric members Ali Child and Rosie Wakley from Behind The Lines are branching out as producers and they’re bringing ‘Scene’ to the Marlborough Theatre, Brighton. Says Ali, “We were stunned by this touching, funny new play when we saw it at the Edinburgh Fringe in August. We’re delighted that the young writers and cast jumped at our offer to perform it in Brighton.”

A new play by Lola Olufemi and Martha Krish.

Ayo and Flo are in love. They are two women who flirt and kiss and cry in front of us. They are the same and they are different. Ayo is black and Flo is white.
Scene, combines romantic comedy with deconstruction of theatrical merit and truth. Its writers Lola Olufemi and Martha Krish unpick their own bias and creative process, midway through their semi-autobiographical narrative about how they fell in love.
Funny, honest and explosively entertaining, this is an exploration of race, gender, sexuality, family and what it means to love someone who doesn’t look like you.

Combining comedy with hard-hitting social commentary, this stunning piece of new writing is a heartfelt, engaging and, at times, laugh-out-loud hilarious portrayal of two women in love rarely seen on stage. Set in present day London, SCENE follows the relationship of Ayo and Flo, and offers a candid, affirming and unapologetic insight into what it’s like to live and fall in love in a society which challenges your selfhood and denies you agency.

Tickets: are £8 and £6, available online at
