What is Shuck ‘n’ Jive all about?
Simone is an opera singer. She thought that London would offer her refuge, that it would finally be a place where she could escape far-right nationalism. She was wrong.
Cassi is an actress. She’s tired of having to fight for roles, especially when it seems like the only auditions she gets are for the tell-it-how-it-is friend, the spirited slave or Crackwhore #3.
These women want to be seen for who and what they are, not just for the colour of their skin. The only way that is going to happen is if they write their own story. So they did. And this is it.

Show was amazing.
The points made regarding racism and the oppression of women/people of colour were sadly nothing new to my wife and I as black people. I couldn't help but wonder whether the non black audience who laughed, when prompted, would truly reflect on the roles they have played in the tapestry described by the artists; or whether they resolved to change. The delivery was interestingly different, perhaps wacky but arguably suited to freshen the awareness and effects of racism. Both artists landed solid punches in the scene involving male abuse and we felt worthy of applaud. On the whole we enjoyed the play finding it an accurate reflection of our life presented away from the norm by two promising artists perhaps in the hope that their message, no plea for parity would be heard.
