News: Full cast and creatives for Now, I See by Lanre Malaolu announced

Stratford East today announce full cast and creatives for the world premiere of Now, I See – the second instalment in a trilogy by Lanre Malaolu (following SAMSKARA, The Yard Theatre) that excavates and celebrates the truth of being a Black man in contemporary Britain. 

Award-winning writer, director, and choreographer Lanre Malaolu directs Oliver Alvin-Wilson (Kieron), Nnabiko Ejimofor (Dayo) and Tendai Humphrey Sitima (Adeyeye) in this brand-new work about brotherhood, healing, forgiveness, and redemption. The production runs at Stratford East from Fri 10 May – Sat 01 June.

Lanre Malaolu said today: “The journey of Now, I See has been extraordinary, with last year’s workshop on the show leaving a lasting impact on all involved. It’s been a privilege to collaborate with such a talented and dedicated cast and team. I’m so excited to share the unique energy of this production with audiences far and wide.”

The creative team is completed by Scenographer: Ingrid Hu; Costume Designer: Debbie Duru; Lighting Designer: Ryan Day; Composer: Jan Brzezinski; Sound Designer: Pär Carlsson; Associate Director: Kirk-Ann Roberts; Assistant Choreographer: Rochea Dyer; Dramaturgs: Anthony Simpson-Pike and Roy Alexander Weise; Production Dramatherapist: Wabriya King; Production Manager: Daniel Steward; Stage Manager on the Book: Meghan Hodgson.

Two brothers reunite to honour their sibling’s life at a celebration of remembrance. As they grapple with their loss, they are forced to confront their shared past and long-standing estrangement. Following the sell-out run of SAMSKARA (The Yard), Now, I See brings together a powerful fusion of movement, song, and text to explore the challenge of forgiving yourself for a lifetime of suppressed emotion, while celebrating the profound bond of brotherhood and the resilience that can be found in joy.

Presented by Stratford East.
