Jonzi D, artistic director of Breakin’ Convention and hip hop theatre presents his solo show about being awarded an MBE. Told through the eyes of a colourful cast of characters, Jonzi uses choreopoetic language, politics and wit to paint a picture of ‘stunning rhythmical clarity’ (Stage). Accompanied by a commissioned score by Kwake Bass (Speakers Corner Quartet) and co-directed by Dawn Walton, The Letter is an intensely personal look at one man’s dilemma: To be or to MBE?.

Doors Open at 7:45pm
