Blood and Gold

‘an exquisite piece of storytelling… performed with choreographic grace and a mesmerising delivery’

Blood And Gold – Entertainingly meaningful

The stories that Menzies weaves are full of expertly crafted light and shade, often most serious when they seem most playful, or starkest when they become most fantastic. Issues arise – of colonialism and slavery, of belonging and identity, of self-confidence and self-hatred – without being hammered home.

a sparkling, often joyous excursion

Scottish Kenyan Menzies is a thrilling performer to watch and an even better writer.
