Zawe Ashton’s newest piece will debut in London this fall. The play, for all the women who thought they were Mad will run October 14–November 9 at Stoke Newington Town Hall, operated by Hackney Showroom.

"At its center is an investigation into the fallout of colonialism and its resounding impact on the women of the African diaspora, specifically women living in the United Kingdom," said Ashton. "It's a play about cultural bias and systemic oppression. Black women are the empathetic center of the piece; their emotions are our emotions. Their struggle is our struggle as an audience."

Ashton has written several plays prior, including Harm’s Way, Skunk and She from the Sea. She'll appear alongside Tom Hiddleston and Charlie Cox in Harold Pitner's Betrayal at the Golden Theatre beginning August 14, marking the Broadway debuts of all three performers.

Helming for all the women who thought they were Mad is Jo McInnes; the production will feature sets and costumes by Natalie Pryce and ULTZ and lighting by Lee Curran.
