"Her writing, whether devastating or hilarious, has always shown a great deal of accessible humanity and relentless intelligence. In this play and its twinkling take on the romcom form, she throws an erratic but big-hearted spotlight on upper-class entitlement and guilt; black identity and pride (and separatism); sexual repression; women's oppression; the responsibility or consequence of success; and, more broadly, the politics of culture and identity."
Bernard Shaw, in his day, showed us that laughter can be a devastating weapon in shattering preconceptions. Nakkah follows in that tradition.
This is a wonderful play – possibly needing just a bit of editing to make it even more effective – but nonetheless ticking just about every box – dialogue, action, comic timing, brilliant setting and without a weak link in the acting.
