About Half-Empty Glasses

Toye is preparing for his piano exam to get into a prestigious music school. He’s doing it for the contacts, the opportunity, the love of art. But when he notices the lack of Black British history in his school’s curriculum, he begins to question himself and the world around him. Is this really his dream, or is he letting these institutions write his story? He starts offering his own school lessons on Black cultural icons, but he quickly discovers that maybe not everyone wants Black history to be celebrated… An empowering new play by Channel 4 bursary winner Dipo Baruwa-Etti about the pressures of being young, gifted and ready to change the world. ‘I still play to their chords. Livin’ within conventions. Livin’ within restrictions. Livin’ within a structure. Lettin’ someone write my story.’ Welcome to Roundabout - Paines Plough’s award-winning portable pop-up theatre! Arriving for its first year in Kingston, the big yellow Roundabout tent will be situated in Memorial Gardens, right in the heart of the town, featuring a rep of three brand-new plays as well as a jam-packed programme including comedy nights, community events and much more! Age Recommendation: 12+
