Thanks for show an interest in our production "BAME Actors wanted for Autumn Theatre Performance" AKA "Finding Myself"
"Finding Myself" is a coming-of-age story about schoolmates Tourae Suso & Zinzin Boni and their struggles through the unforgiving grind of secondary school, made all the worse by disciplinarian headteacher Mr Sarwar. Tourae is highly artistic & street-smart while Zinzin is so academically gifted school is a waste of time for her, but they're drawn together by their lack of self-esteem and jilted longing for learning about black history. With the arrival of the new history teacher Mr Kogberegbe & his infusion of black history into all his lessons, however, the children's self-confidence & results skyrocket - much to the annoyance of Mr Sarwar, who soon plots to destroy his reputation. Can Tourae & Zinzin rescue the one person who shows genuine concern for their mental well-being?
