You will know playwright Jasmine Lee-Jones from her debut hit play seven methods of killing kylie jenner at the Royal Court but now you can also see the Guildhall-trained actor making her stage debut as a performer. Even better she’s starring in her own play, set in London over several centuries, and charting the progress of two Black queer female actors who are discovering who they are and forging their identities. Follow up plays always have a lot riding on them but if it’s as frank and funny as her debut there should be nothing to worry about.
Jaz is in her second year at drama school. Jaz is tired of performing. Hence her conundrum. But when she stumbles across a piece of forgotten history – her life is changed forever… What does it mean to find yourself? Especially when it seems the world you live in is diametrically set against you doing just that? Set against the sprawling backdrop of urban London across centuries, curious is a frank, funny and moving excavation of the lives of two actresses who are young, Black, queer and trying to find out who they are. Jasmine Lee-Jones was the winner of Evening Standard Award 2019 and Critics’ Circle Theatre Award for Most Promising Playwright for her play seven methods of killing kylie jenner at the Royal Court (reopening this summer). Age Recommendation: 16+
