Sneak Preview Review: VENUS’ DAUGHTER

by Lynn on February 18, 2016

in The Passionate Playgoer

At the Theatre Centre.

By Meghan Swaby
Directed by Philip Akin
Cast: Akosua Amo-Adem
Kaleb Alexanger
Meghan Swaby

A multi-layered play about body-image, how culture has defined it, and family history. Swaby explores this specifically from a black perspective and therefore makes a universal statement that we all can appropriate in our own lives.

The play is poetic, hard-hitting, appropriately uncomfortable when referencing history, and moving as a family story.

The production is sensitively directed by Philip Akin and beautifully acted by Akosua Amo-Adem, Kaleb Alexander and Meghan Swaby.

Full review tomorrow, Friday, Feb. 19 on CIUT FRIDAY MORNING, 89.5 fm. 9 am to 10 am.
