London’s VAULT Festival 2020: APPLE by The Upsetters and Purple Moon Drama (Preview)
LONDON – Playing as part of the VAULT Festival 2020, APPLE charts the story of Rosemary Clark as she goes on a journey of self-discovery from slut-drops in the
Trocadero back to rural Jamaica.
Written and performed by Purple Moon Drama founder Cheryl Ndione, and directed by Simone Watson, APPLE is poised to be a darkly comic and introspective look at a less-than-rosy mother and daughter relationship. She’s desperate have a moment of truth and connection and decides her mother’s wedding day is the perfect occasion.
As Rosemary relives the moments that inform her choices, her story charts an emotional pilgrimage across international borders punctuated by lucid reflections that both inform and traumatise in equal measure in an ode to the plight of the diaspora.
APPLE runs from 21st to 22nd February 2020 at the Studio, VAULT Festival, Leake Street, London SE1 7NN. Tickets available here
