Arinzé Kene’s solo masterpiece Misty has transferred to the West End for a limited run, following a sold-out engagement at the Bush Theatre.
Misty is a blend of theatre, gig and performance poetry which explores creative freedom in modern London. Telling us of a pulsating vision of the city around us, Arinzé delivers a heartfelt, playful and epic performance.
With an original musical score performed live during the show, Misty reimagines the city that we live in.
Screen International UK Star of Tomorrow, actor and writer Arinzé Kene was raised in London to Nigerian parents. His most recent plays include good dog, which tiata fahodzi theatre company toured throughout the UK in 2017, and God’s Property, a co-production with Talawa, which ran at Soho Theatre in 2013. Arinzé was previously named ‘Most Promising Playwright’ at the Off West End Theatre Awards for Estate Walls at Oval House Theatre, which was also nominated for Best New Play.
On screen Arinzé has appeared in new E4/Netflix Original series Crazyhead and took the lead of ‘Ade’ in the film The Pass opposite Russell Tovey. On stage he played soul singing legend ‘Sam Cooke’ in One Night In Miami at the Donmar Warehouse and performed in Girl From The North Country in the West End.
Misty is directed by Bush Theatre Associate Director Omar Elerian (NASSIM, One Cold Dark Night, Islands).
A stark, honest and engaging tour de force performance, Misty is a show that every visitor to London will be transfixed by.
