We bring you a matinee of a hilarious take on Twelfth Night and one woman’s tale as she navigates all that comes with having afro hair.
Written & Performed by Tim Crouch
2pm – 3.10pm
I, Malvolio re-imagines Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night from the point of view of its most notoriously abused steward. It’s a charged, hilarious and sometimes unsettling rant from a man adrift in front of a cruel audience. Part abject clown, part theatre-hating disciplinarian, Malvolio asks his audience to explore the pleasure we take in other people’s suffering.

Can I Touch Your Hair?
3:30pm – 4:30pm
“Is it real? Can I touch it?”
Lekhani grew up mixed race in Cumbria and she’s realised she doesn’t actually know what to do about her hair. No one taught her and YouTube just isn’t helping.
Thank goodness for her hairdresser, who is in fact her longest standing relationship to date and ohh does she love getting her hair done. Trying out new hairstyles is all well and good but how do you cope with everyone’s unnecessary questions and comments?
Join Lekhani on her hair journey as she discovers that she can’t wash her hair with 99p Alberto Balsam, that she has no clue how to cornrow and is over being faced with constant microaggressions.
A bold yet humorous piece, this is an exploration of what cultural appropriation really means, hair struggles but more importantly, the pride and acceptance of identity.
Some content may not be suitable for under 14s. Warning: includes identity politics and racism (microaggressions, misogynoir and cultural appropriation).
