Bite Your Tongue is the latest show from Talawa Theatre Company’s TYPT.

Enough is enough!
How long can we do nothing?
How long can we bite our tongues?

In a city fracturing under the weight of hate and fear, a movement grows.

A new tower can be spotted on the skyline, nestled in between the glittering symbols of the city’s wealth and power.

Built by different hands.
Occupied by different bodies.

As the media becomes more divisive and political leaders lay blame on ‘both sides’, Bite Your Tongue asks whether we should find ways to come together or express ourselves on our own terms.


Bite Your Tongue plays at Hackney Showroom from 31 August to 2 September 2017. Tickets are £8 (£5), curtain raisers (spoken word) at 7.30pm with the show starting at 8pm.

'Bite Your Tongue' is a thrilling new show featuring music, words an dance, devised by London’s freshest emerging Black talent, produced by Talawa Theatre Company.

“…an edge of the seat, riveting play that lingers in the body and mind days after. Talawa never fails to walk straight into the crossfire of the social and political minefield, extract the bodies of the wounded and raise them up positively.”
