Roots and Blossom Productions presents the premiere of its stage play “My Nina Simone Trip”.

My Nina Simone Trip

A unique, engaging, intelligent, endearing and enjoyable production – “My Nina Simone Trip”, is an hallucinatory journey of the loves, passion, pain, anger and complexities of the inimitable music, art and life of Nina Simone, written and performed by international award-winning actress, writer and vocalist Ese Brume, a lifelong fan of Nina Simone, whose journey on this project started 14 years ago.
This small and intimate production, is a bold and fresh embodiment of the intricacies of Ms Simone as known to her legions of fans across the globe.

Directed by – Najite Dede, Brume’s performance is a dense rendering of the many layers of Nina Simone’s complex, thorny, and byzantine life.
This one-woman show is a commemoration of Ms Simon, framed with her music (some of which have been adapted with a domestic flavour), against a tapestry of intense and dramatic narratives, which will have you spellbound for the one hour duration and beyond!
