The reviews are clear – MISTY is a groundbreaking success


Arinzé Kene‘s brand new play MISTY, exploring race and cultural stereotyping, “bursts with life”, provoking delight and conversation among audiences and critics alike.

“full of pep and vigour” – Fiona Mountford, The Evening Standard, 4*

“pulsing and potent…Misty is at once a polemic, an essay and a poem, and as he proved in One Night in Miami and Girl from the North Country, Kene is a captivating performer – spectacularly charismatic”      – Natasha Tripney , The Stage 4*

“It’s bracing to see the question of who gets to tell stories – and how they might be circumscribed – tackled head-on here, with wit, exuberance and visual flair.” – Holly Williams, Time Out4*

“It’s as fiercely thought as it is elegantly structured, split down the centre between story and storyteller.”   – Matt Trueman, What’s On Stage, 4*

“a powerful meditation on how we tell stories and a raw, beautiful Odyssey through the heart of London” – Laura De Lisle,犀利士
 The Arts Desk, 4*

“extraordinarily rich and ambitious” – Mike Scott-Harding, Afridiziak, 5*
