We Need New Names

We Need New Names

Based on the novel by the first Black African woman and first Zimbabwean to be Booker Prize-shortlisted, this defiant coming-of-age story, directed by Monique Touko and presented by Fifth Word and New Perspectives, is full of exuberance, humour and humanity.

Paradise. Home of 10-year-old Darling and her friends. A playground overflowing with mischief and games where they imagine countries a luxurious life away from theirs in Mugabe’s Zimbabwe.

But when Darling moves to Michigan, the western world she encounters as a teenager is far from the American utopia of her dreams…

Fifth Ward are a leading regional new writing company dedicated to discovering, developing, championing and producing some of the most exciting playwrights of today. The plays they make are bold, accessible and urgent: they amplify the stories of those who can often go unheard or easily slip through the cracks in society. Recently they toured the acclaimed play Lava across the UK in 2022.

New Perspectives return to HOME following their sold-out production of ‘The Fishermen’ in 2018 which, following its Manchester run, went on to tour the UK as well as be performed in the West End. For over 50 years they have created work with a broad world view, sharing new perspectives and stories with communities in overlooked places ensuring that arts and culture can be experienced by anyone wherever they live.
