Slavery To Star Trek (Andreea Kindryd)

By | Published on Tuesday 9 August 2011

At the beginning of her show, Andreea Kindryd explains that she once considered writing a book about her full and fascinating life, but decided against it as it was was too lonely and, anyway, she just liked talking too much. In this show, she speaks at length, and also incredibly well; she is an enthralling storyteller and her tale captivates. It spans a broad history – from her ancestors’ lives as slaves, to chatting with Malcolm X about “nothing in particular”; Martin Luther King’s penchant for making her blush (“in a considerate way”), and the time she spent working on the set of ‘Star Trek’. A whole-hearted and inspirational speaker, her powerful personality shines in this intimate space.

C eca, 3 – 29 Aug (not 16), 4.20pm (5.15pm), £6.50 – £9.50 fpp298.
