Knock Against My Heart


Knock Against My Heart is a play written for Theatre Centre by Oladipo Agboluaje. It toured to audiences aged 14+ secondary schools in 2008.

Set to the music and soul of Rio’s favelas, this thrilling play was inspired by The Tempest and developed in a unique collaboration with Brazil’s acclaimed theatre company Nós Do Morro

“Knock Against My Heart was a complete theatrical experience… provocative, really sexy, painful and funny. It touched me in a deep way.”

Romeo in the City


Romeo in the City is set in a modern day urban comprehensive school. A cast of 15-17 year olds have been chosen to perform Romeo and Juliet as the school production. Against this background we follow the parallel stories of the cast members as they are forced to work with people who they would not normally associate with. As the story unfolds, the audience will reflect whether fact will follow fiction as two cast members fall in love.

The main inspiration for the design was an urban street setting, the alliance that youths and gangs have to their urban surroundings and street culture today. The visual elements of the set were inspired by the city streets: grey concrete, Banksy’s graffiti, advertising billboards and metal grills. I felt that the urban environment was always present even within the scenes set indoors.
