Quarter Life Crisis at the Bridge Theatre

Published on 28th August 2020

After a sell out performance in 2017, Yolanda Mercy is back with her hit theatre and radio show Quarter Life Crisis at the Bridge Theatre. Alicia is a hot mess. She doesn’t know what she’s doing with her life. Swiping left, swiping right to find the perfect match. Even though she’s a Londoner, born and bred, the scent of Lagos peppers her existence in the ends. Everyone around her seems to know where they’re going in life, but she’s just trying to find ways to cheat growing up and keep her 16-25 railcard. What does it mean to be an adult and when do you become one? Quarter Life Crisis mixes addictive baselines and spoken word.

An Evening with An Immigrant at the Bridge Theatre

Presented by Inua Ellams and Fuel; An Evening with An Immigrant at the Bridge Theatre. Born to a Muslim father and a Christian mother in what is now considered by many to be Boko Haram territory, award-winning poet and playwright Inua Ellams left Nigeria for England in 1996 aged 12, moved to Ireland for three years, before returning to London and starting work as a writer and graphic designer. Part of this story was documented in his autobiographical Fringe First Award-winning play The 14th Tale, but much of it is untold. Littered with poems, stories and anecdotes, Inua tells his ridiculous, fantastic,poignant immigrant-story of escaping fundamentalist Islam, experiencing prejudice and friendship in Dublin, performing solo at the National Theatre, and drinking wine with the Queen of England, all the while without a country to belong to or place to call home.
