I got the amazing opportunity to participate in Fresh Ground Pepper's 2014 Playground Festival at South Oxford Space in a reading of "Mourning Sun" by Antu Yacob, directed by David Mendizábal.
"The FGP PlayGround PlayGroup is a long-term writers' group for artists working on projects in their earliest stages of development. PlayGround PlayGroup operates just like the rest of FGP - it is a place where writers can be bold and unabashed in their creation of work and their support of one another. The PlayGround Festival marks the culmination of a year of work on these projects."
