This year at DivaFest, we are thrilled to see two plays in development. Fan Me, Lord, a comedy with serious bits, is being written by Ramla Bandele and is at the stage where the playwright needs to hear it all the way through. Audiences will get to experience the journey not only of the characters but also of the plays themselves as they move through the development process. Each play considers the life experience and showcase voices not often heard.
An insecure young woman moves to London for graduate school but also to get over an unsuccessful engagement. She returns home two years later with a new fiancé, convinced she has a new-found confidence. But it is soon apparent that past family secrets* threaten it. Can she face the challenges and keep her “new- found self-confidence?”
