The High Table, The Debut Play By Temi Wilkey

 

An epic family drama played out between the heavens and earth, The High Table is the hilarious and heart-breaking debut play from Temi Wilkey which opens at the Bush Theatre on 8 February (Press Night 14 February) and transfers to Birmingham Repertory Theatre from 25 March.  The cast have today been announced as Stefan Adegbola, Jumoké Fashola, Ibinabo Jack, Cherrelle Skeete and David Webber, alongside musician Mohamed Gueye.
 
‘That’s actually what me and Leah came here to talk to you about. Look- there’s no easy way of saying this, but… Leah and I are getting married.’


The dresses are chosen, the venue’s booked and the RSVPs are flooding in. But Tara’s perfect Nigerian wedding to her girlfriend Leah is suddenly derailed when her parents refuse to attend. 

High above London, suspended between the stars, three of Tara’s ancestors are jolted from their eternal rest. Can these representatives of generations passed keep the family together? And will Tara’s decision ever get their blessing?
