Reliably informed

I like sex. Think I love football more. Sometimes I cry during it, as we know. The sex, not the football. I’m single and I am well aware that this is not an appropriate forum to find my next partner. I hate that you keep asking questions and I hate that I feel compelled to answer them and I’ve thought about leaving at least five times since we’ve started but I’d actually rather be here than anywhere else so I am still here.”

So says main character Tunde, a loveable young rogue who is struggling to claw his way out of a dark mental space. Tunde is the creation of a bright new talent platformed by Soho Theatre and Paines Plough who bring you Sessions by Ifeyinwa Frederick.

Frederick is a fervent believer in the power of storytelling and human connection. Sessions is her second play which explores the complexity of depression and therapy as it follows the life of British-Nigerian Tunde in his struggle with depression and masculinity.

Sessions is performed at Arts Centre Washington on Thursday 30th September and Middlesbrough Town Hall on Monday 4th October
