Marble Cake is a brand-new play which takes a snapshot look at the relationship between a mixed-race brother and sister, Kumi and Keisha, who come together for the first time in months. Over the course of one evening Keisha returns to visit Kumi in their family home in South London and issues that they have not previously explored together come to the surface for the first time; the impact is huge. The curtain is drawn back, and the audience is brought into this intimate and difficult moment between them, where they try to navigate conversations of race, mixed. heritage, abandonment, and male mental health. 


Marble Cake is written and performed by two young mixed-race (Black African/Caribbean and White British) actors but is not just for those of dual heritage, whether you have a personal connection to this identity or the subject of personal identity in general. The play is not trying to give concrete answers to any of these questions, but more to examine and open the conversation around them, particularly highlighting how varied and complex any individual’s relationship with identity can be.
