What is J’Ouvert play about? Its time for Carnival which means Notting Hill is bursting with colour, feathers and sequins whilst the streets are alive with history. J’Ouvert is a timely reflection on the Black British experience and the sexual politics of Carnival. The story follows two best friends, Jade and Nadine, who are fighting for a space in a world they thought was already theirs. This is a hilarious and fearless play with friendship at the core, as the pair battle to preserve tradition in a society that frequently poses threat to women’s bodies.
