Tambo & Bones
på Theatre Royal Stratford East
Tambo & Bones are trapped in a minstrel show. It's mad hard to feel like a real person when you're trapped in a minstrel show. Their escape plan: get out, get bank, get even. So, accept our invitation, if you will, to step from the heart of the crumbling Empire into an America at the epicentre of the global Black Lives Matter movement. Part distorted clown-show, part spectacular hip-hop concert, part absurdist Afro-futuristic lecture (with robots!), TAMBO & BONES interrogates the commodification and commercialisation of Black pain in a satirical roller coaster of a show. Praise for the 2022 Playwrights Horizons production: “Brilliant!” New York Magazine “A shape-shifting production that makes you second-guess everything you do in a theatre.” Theatermania Presented by Theatre Royal Stratford East and Actors Touring Company.
