Denver Isaac opens in Fast Cuts and Snapshots

Date - 2 June, 2014, All News Opening Nights Theatre

Denver Isaac plays the roles of Kwame and Tanaka in Fast Cuts and Snapshots for Fuel Theatre. This production is presented as part of A Play, A Pie and the National Theatre of Scotland.

Winston, Emmanuel and Samuel work in a barber shop in London. Samuel and Emmanuel have a long lasting grievance relating to Samuel’s father – why was he sent to prison and who was to blame? Winston muses on the differences between Africans and Carribeans in the diaspora as a host of characters from all walks of life pass through their shop sharing stories: Ethan explores what it means to be a strong black man in the west; Muhammed boasts of his interracial-dating exploits and old Sizwe recounts his first use of electric razors in Zimbabwe.

Following Black T-shirt Collection and the award winning The 14th Tale, Inua Ellams’ Fast Cuts and Snapshots is a state-of-the-nation stack-of-polaroids offering glimpses at the inner most sentiments of black men; about country, people, football and politics in modern-day Britain.
