What secrets would you tell a complete stranger?

A long taxi ride becomes a winding long journey into the past and the histories that shape us… a phone call conversation opens up a powerful set of revelations about incarceration and the criminal justice system… a university campus becomes a breeding ground for anti-trans hostility... the child of enslaved parents asks what freedom can really look like... a Black trans man is slowly realising that coming to terms with yourself is a fraught and uneven journey. Contained within these new stories by Travis Alabanza, Felix Mufti-Wright, Octavia Nyombi, Ebun Sodipo and Campbell X, are secrets – and you’re invited to listen.

When All Is Said is a collection of 5 short plays, written by 5 Black trans people, in their own voices, delivered over the phone. Curated by Travis Alabanza and directed by Emily Aboud and Leian John Baptiste, When All Is Said offers you the opportunity to sit back and listen, as these worlds and journeys are brought to life.

This project is produced and commissioned by Fuel, with support from Arts Council England.
