Look at Us, written in close collaboration between the poet and novelist JJ Bola and the fiction writer and poet Daniel Kramb, is a short play that zooms in on a young couple, spending their nights and days in a London flatshare, in bed: unable to deal with the situation, in thrall of social media; utterly powerless.
Featuring original poetry and music, it deals with the political situation, gender roles, class, sexuality, and the influence of social media.
For a public reading in East London on 6th June 2019
at Pages of Hackney
We are looking for two actors (female/male) playing a couple in their early twenties.

She is black, grew up on a London council estate; working in a dead-end office job, living in a dingy Dalston flatshare.
He is white, the son of well-off parents; an aspiring actor, living in the same dingy Dalston flatshare.
