First Look Readings – Some Of Us Are Brave by Adura Onashile

First Look Readings is the Traverse’s celebration of new writing, in which three Traverse-commissioned plays will be performed in front of an audience for the very first time, script-in-hand by professional actors. Brennan Artist Adura Onashile‘s Some of Us Are Brave is the first of the season’s plays.

We won’t be one of those couples that have a secret language that we display in public.
God, no!
And we won’t have any secrets?
No, no secrets

Lola and Sam are in love. Lola is Black. Sam is White. Set over a weekend at Sam’s brother’s wedding, their relationship slowly unravels in a tangled web of sex, lies and internalised racism.
