News: Rehearsal images released for Little Miss Burden

Rehearsal images have been released for Little Miss Burden, which comes to The Bunker this December. A vital tale of growing up with a wheelchair in the ‘90s, this is a poignant new coming-of-age story from award-winning playwright and screenwriter Matilda Ibini.

Mashing together some serious ‘90s nostalgia, a Nigerian family in East London and Sailor Moon, Ibini’s new play draws on her own experiences as a teenager to tell the tricky, but often funny, truth about growing up with a physical impairment.

When thirteen-year-old Little Miss receives a gift, she must learn not just to live with it, but use and get on with it: they can’t both be Player One, and Little Miss needs to keep up with Big Sis and Little Sis. A story of self-love and sisterly love, Little Miss Burden follows the trio of sisters as Little Miss learns to understand her disability and how to live with it as part of her.

Little Miss Burden plays at The Bunker from 3 – 21 December 2019.
