Following its sold-out run at the Bush Theatre, Arinzé Kene's acclaimed Misty transfers to London’s Trafalgar Studios for six weeks only
Through a visceral blend of theatre, gig and performance poetry, Arinzé delivers an epic, heartfelt and playful exploration of creative freedom, set against a pulsing vision of modern London.
Misty is directed by the Bush Theatre’s Omar Elerian (NASSIM, One Cold Dark Night, Islands) and features an original musical score performed live during the show.
