Takeover 2018: Mano's
Saturday 28 July
All orders will be subject to a fee of £1.50 except if your tickets are free or if you are a member
“Secrets will always come out…Some secrets are justified, others best left alone.”
Mano’s is the only all-female garage in east London, a safe haven for hard-working Muslim women looking for a bit of independence. Business is booming. But some people just can’t bear to see women do well and the quiet judgement of the local Bengali community gains a dangerous face when Detective Inspector Chowdhury arrives, bringing with her an accusation that threatens to destroy everything Mano has ever worked for. The women begin to realise that holding onto secrets could destroy the garage, and that justice isn’t always as clear-cut as it would seem.
In November 2017, the company invited BAME women from the local community of Tower Hamlets and Mulberry alumni, parents, and staff to develop ideas, concepts and characters for a brand new play in conversation with playwright Guleraana Mir and Creative Producer Afsana Begum. The result is Mono’s, a thrilling and turbulent tale set in East London’s only all-female garage. Mano’s will be brought to life by eleven community actors, who have been rehearsing the play from May 2018 and working collaboratively with a professional creative team led by Director Mina Barber.
