Shuck ‘n’ Jive

Cassiopeia Berkeley-Agyepong and Simone Ibbett-Brown’s 2019 play Shuck ‘n’ Jive is the latest addition to Soho Theatre’s On Demand series. This new version, created especially for its digital platform, takes advantage of film editing techniques to manage the episodic narrative, move back in time, insert fantasy sequences and draw heavily on popular culture in its exploration of endemic racism, female friendship and the value of theatre.

Sick of failed auditions and stereotyped casting, friends Cassi and Simone decide to write their own play based on the everyday conversations they have with each other in person and, more often, by text. Drawing together their experiences of microaggressions and more overt forms of prejudice, they create a satirical anthology piece called Shuck ‘n’ Jive.
