Ryan Calais Cameron

Five stars in the Torygraph, among a torrent of rave reviews, for Retrograde at the Kiln.
"This account of a pivotal episode in the life of Sidney Poitier is so articulately defiant it bears comparison with The Crucible." That's my monthly theatre trip for May sorted then; all done and dusted for Tuesday 23rd.

I googled the author, Ryan Calais Cameron, whose work here "propels him, at a stroke, to the front rank of our playwrights" and found he was born in Tooting, just up the road from where I sit writing. Also, he's got something called For Black Boys Who Have Considered Suicide When The Hue Gets Too Heavy on in the West End at the moment, but I can't make it as it closes next weekend.

I'd forgotten I had an account on the Kiln website, but when my email address pointed me its way I could see a list of my other visits to the building.
