BRENDA'S GOT A BABY, a new play by Jessica Hagan (Queens of Sheba) will open at the New Diorama Theatre this Autumn.

Anastasia Osei-Kuffour will direct the world premiere of BRENDA'S GOT A BABY, a co-production between Nouveau Riche (For Black Boys ...) and New Diorama - playing from October 31st.

An uproarious new comedy about Black womanhood, sisterhood, motherhood – and babyhood.
After an unexpected break-up and beaten down by comparison to her married little sister, Ama embarks on a frenzied journey to become a mother. Rollercoastering from a Black sperm donor shortage to a racialised healthcare system - and an overbearing family of her own - Ama's charging head-first into embarrassing conversations, awkward encounters and defiant decisions. And time is running out...

The show was co-commissioned by New Diorama and Soho Theatre with support from Arts Council England. More details can be found here.
