The Day Nina Simone Stopped Singing

From 26/10/2015 at 19:30 to 27/10/2015

Written & performed by Darina Al-Joundi | in French with English surtitles | 16+

Following sell-out runs in Avignon, Paris and Boston, this internationally acclaimed show is coming to London.

This autobiographical one-hander is a deeply moving, powerful and harrowing personal account of Darina Al-Joundi’s experiences growing up in Lebanon during the 1970s. Told unapologetically and with great humour, Darina’s story has captivated audiences around the world, shinning a light on the daily atrocities experienced by civilians living through war, and the on-going struggle for female emancipation in the Middle East.
