Hello everyone, I hope you are all well! :)
I am delighted to write this post about a great play now on stage at The Cockpit Theatre in Marylebone. I have been asked to make some themed cupcakes for the conference on Thomas Sankara which was held at SOAS, University of London in early March. I attended the conference and I must say it was absolutely fabulous to be back to my ex uni for such a great talk! The evening was fantastic and the life of President Sankara so inspiring!!
If you are looking for a way to spend your night out I recommend to go and see the play :) The actors are amazing and the play full of surprises!
Here are some info on the play:
"The Bard's "Julius Caesar" inspires the unforgettable story of the African hero Thomas Sankara, President of Burkina Faso from 1983 to 1987. Sankara brought an unprecedented change in the mentality of his country, refused foreign aid (under the slogan "he who feeds you, controls you") and consequent debt, nationalised all land and mineral wealth, promoted work for everyone to reach food self-sufficiency and build the first international railway.
Champion of human rights and unshakable feminist, Sankara overtly denounced the dark powers behind the mechanism of debt, which still enslaves Africa and the Western World to this day."
