Racheal Ofori’s

Portrait 

A frank, fun and provocative look at the trials and tribulations of modern life as seen through the eyes of a young black woman. Inspired by Racheal’s own experiences, Portrait uses music, poetry, humour and dance to examine identity and role models and challenge cultural stereotypes. After a hit run at Edinburgh and a successful UK tour in 2015, Racheal brings back her debut show for a 2017 tour. Directed by Kate Hewitt.

"fearless and uplifting" THE SCOTSMAN

"It's an exciting show from a writer/performer we'll hopefully hear more from soon." ☆☆☆☆ The List

 "she is near perfection" Broadway Baby
