Reviews for Racheal Ofori's PORTRAIT at PLEASANCE DOME 

"Ofori's excellent writing fuses poetry and prose to allow each character to vividly leap off the page" THE STAGE

"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

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.
