“Camden People Theatre’s feminist theatre festival Calm Down Dear gets off to a cracking start with Racheal Ofori’s So Many Reasons”, reads The Stage’s review of Racheal Ofori’s one-woman show SO MANY REASONS. “Ofori’s show is a big achievement, boldly depicting the weight of cultural heritage amid the pressures of millennial experience and the quest for personal contentment.”
SO MANY REASONS is Racheal’s first show for Fuel (who also produce Inua Ellams’ BARBER SHOP CHRONICLES) since her hit play PORTRAIT, which has been touring to packed venues and festivals since it’s opening in 2015.
It runs throughout the festival, and tickets are available here: https://www.cptheatre.co.uk/production/so-many-reasons/.
“Racheal Ofori is a British-Ghanaian millennial reckoning with sex, spirituality and herself in this refreshing one-woman show…Ofori is a hugely engaging performer” (Lyn Gardner, The Guardian)
“It’s refreshing to hear someone tackle faith onstage without shame, embarrassment or cynicism, and Ofori really wrestles with her feminist theological dilemma. It matters to Melissa, so it matters to us – whatever our beliefs.” (Matt Trueman, WhatsOnStage)
“Rollicking good fun, serious philosophical lowdown, and pure youthful emotion…a joy from start to finish.” (London Theatre 1)
A “hilarious quintessential guide to life has a British Ghanaian woman in the millennial age…Ofori is a tour-de-force”. (A Younger Theatre)
“Ofori’s stories make us laugh, make us empathise and make us think about wider issues of religion, shame and sex” (The Reviews Hub)
