DescriptionThey heard. They came. Now they see London’s not what it’s claimed to be.
Peppered with Afrobeat Rhythms, John Akinde’s debut play journeys through the lives of a migrant couple as they struggle to find their feet in their Newfoundland. Directed by Monaé Robinson and produced by Poetic Impact, OJÀ explores unemployment, illegal immigration, and deprivation.
As the play seeks to uncover the real impact of the black market on communities, audiences are given an insight into an underground world where everyday people fight to survive by any means necessary.
