I Know It Was The Blood - Camden Fringe 2019

The Totally True Adventures of a Newfangled Black Woman

The London Irish Centre


After racking up wins on its U.S. Tour, "I Know It Was The Blood: The Totally True Adventures of a Newfangled Black Woman" makes its U.K. Premiere! Actress, soprano, and storyteller Tara Lake takes audiences on a journey into the world of African-American Jersey girlhood in the 1980s-1990s -- a world steeped in family Sundays, church conventions, and extravagant reunions, weddings, and funerals. In a story of triumph tinged with bits of heartache, a scrappy girl-child navigates a changing world and finds the courage to live life on her own terms. It's an unforgettable sojourn embracing southern roots, gospel rhythms, and queer identity, in which one family's love conquers all. Join us for a compelling performance of soul-rich theatre, storytelling, song, and poetry! Suitable for ages 13+.*U.K. Premiere *Artists' Choice Award, Chicago Fringe Festival*Rochester (NY) Fringe Festival "Best Bet" - Rochester Democrat & Chronicle*"Not To Miss at Charm City Fringe" - Baltimore Magazine
