WOKE

Hip-hop and feminism are on a collision course. And Testament reckons he’s the guy to sort it out.

A rapper and world record holding beatboxer, he thinks he’s a right-on kind of guy.

 

Then his daughter is born and suddenly he’s not so sure. That’s why he’s staying up late, lost in the dark worlds of the internet. Because that’s the place people go to talk about these things.

 

What will he discover as he starts to unpick his own prejudices? With a dose of wit, a knack for self-deprecation and a truck-load of honesty, Testament is ready to find out.

 

Expect beatboxing, spoken word, storytelling and hip-hop classics like you’ve never heard them before.

 

A West Yorkshire Playhouse, Royal Exchange, Roundhouse and Camden People’s Theatre coproduction.
