J'Ouvert Theatre & Performing Arts


J’Ouvert, the debut play from one of Theatre503’s resident playwright’s Yasmin Joseph, is a rhythmic and vibrant testimony of womanhood.

An incredible team of black women and non-binary artists join forces to present a rhythmic and vibrant testimony of womanhood.

It’s Notting Hill Carnival and the streets in West London are alive. In dazzling colour and endless sequins and feathers, Jade and Nadine are fighting for space in a world they thought was theirs. J’Ouvert is a hilarious and fearless story of two best friends, battling to preserve tradition in a society where women’s bodies are frequently under threat.

Rebekah Murrell (Nine Night, National Theatre, Trafalgar Studios) will make her directorial debut offering a timely reflection on the Black British experience and the sexual politics that are experienced at Carnival and beyond.

Using the lens of a relatable friendship between two young women, J’Ouvert highlights just how much the personal can be political. The production, which transforms Theatre503 into the vibrant streets of Carnival, aims to empowers Black British artists to not question the validity or worthiness of their stories but to be inspired to tell them.
