A Unity Theatre and Riksteatern co-production with Young Vic

Backed by a brilliant band, Olivier Award-nominated actress Josette Bushell-Mingo (Disney’s The Lion King) mixes story and song as she draws together tales from the life of Nina Simone and her own extraordinary career.

Touching upon the 1960’s civil rights movement, and drawing into parallel the struggles of the civil rights movement today. Nina Simone was one of the most extraordinary artists of the twentieth century. She was the consummate musical storyteller who used her remarkable talent to create a legacy of liberation, empowerment, and love through a magnificent body of work.
