90 Days by Ashok Patel

Dramaturgy by Ola Animashawun

1972, Uganda. Despite the long standing tensions between Asian Ugandans and native Ugandans, the Mavanis and their live-in workers the Zulukas have successfully lived side by side in harmony for generations, almost as one family. Sudesh Mavani has just taken over his father’s electrical business and is desperate to live up to his father’s legacy. Wynnie Zuluka wants to build a future for herself away from the Mavanis, but her dream of owning a food business is out of reach as banks won’t lend to Black Ugandans.

When President Idi Amin decrees the expulsion of all Asian Ugandans within 90 days, loyalties are tested and power shifts.

90 Days is a play inspired by real events.

Invisible by Daniel Anderson

Dramaturgy by Jouvan Fucinni 

Set in Birmingham 2025, in a crime riddled and divided Kingdom fearful of revolutionaries after a recent failed coup. An Artificial Intelligence known as the Guv’nor is installed in a new supermax prison to tend to all prisoner needs, maintain order and serve justice.

When Pastor Richards sees the mistreatment of prisoners by a machine, his conscience demands that he acts in their defence. But is he willing to pay the price for the freedom of others.

A futuristic drama about politics, social injustice and technology’s ability to care for man. 

Produced by Toyin Omari -Kinch

Directed by Jouvan Fucinni

Both plays are performed by an Ensemble cast: Simran Kular, Kimisha Lewis, Aaron Thiara, Marcel White and Cornell John.
