The main themes explored in The Sun, the Moon, and the Stars are grief and justice, but alongside those race, revenge, and family are also key to the play and Femi’s journey within it.
Which playwrights are you influenced by and in what way?
I tend to be influenced by writers who play with how they use language within their stories and how that changes the tone, atmosphere, and creates a unique musicality in their work. Suzan-Lori Parks, debbie tucker green, Wole Soyinka, and Tennessee Williams are amongst those playwrights.
I want to tell stories that allow Black audiences to have conversations with one another about issues that might not be the easiest to confront or unpack.
