Catch It While You Can
1. Crying in the Wilderness Productions - Conundrum
This play by Crying in the Wilderness Productions was due to open at the Young Vic in May. For obvious reasons, that didn’t happen so the company has made a 30 minute solo version featuring Anthony Ofoegbu. We love its intensity, but also its choreography – which was created by Shane Shambhu. You can watch the full show on European Capital of Culture Rijeka 2020’s YouTube Channel until 6th December. Here’s the trailer:
