My Name Is Why
This is Lemn Sissay’s life story; a story of neglect and determination, misfortune and hope, cruelty and triumph.
Sissay reflects on a childhood in care, self-expression and Britishness, and in doing so explores the institutional care system, race, family and the meaning of home.
Infused with all the lyricism and power you would expect from one of the nation’s best-loved poets, this moving, frank and timely performance is the result of a life spent asking questions, and a celebration of the redemptive power of creativity.
