This comic tale examines Phina's observations on what others have made of her black identity as a model, actress, radio presenter and writer in the fickle media world. Nine characters: black, white, old, young, male, female. One woman. 'A whirlwind, a well-written piece of theatre… A sharp and insightful play' **** (Abiola Lawal). 'Oruche seamlessly transforms into nine other larger than life characters, Oruche is clever. Her play is hilarious' **** ( 'Phina's ability to gauge just the right level of humour when re-enacting painful experiences was sublime throughout… It was storytelling at its finest' **** (
