how we love

how we love

Part of Arcola’s festival of outdoor art and performance

Overview

“We are too loud me and you. We are too bold, too stubborn. My god Regi I don’t want to die.”

What would you do to be with the one you love?

Gay investigative journalist Babatunde ‘Babs’ Okonkwo visits his lesbian best friend Regina ‘Regi’ Abengowe in Lewisham. With mounting pressures back in Nigeria, where homosexuality is illegal and escalating dangers for their partners, Babs and Regi hatch a plan to get married with the help of Regi’s 89-year-old German Jewish neighbour and the ‘Mr & Mrs’ Board Game. They hope this ‘cover’ will stop the threatening rumours and allow Babs to safely expose the inhumane treatment of LGBTQIA+ people in Nigeria, especially in the north where being gay is publishable by death. how we love is a play about different types of love.
