Selina Armoudon shares a work-in-progress reading of her new show, Lisa & Luca, followed by a Q&A as part of our Black History Month digital programme.

What to expect

Lisa is a modern Black British woman wanting to thrive in a society and a relationship that doesn’t satisfy her needs. Struggling with the dark secret of a sex and love addiction and an unfair dismissal from her job that was meant to make her happy, she desperately tries to maintain the status quo. Does her ‘work hard, play harder’ attitude begin to unravel the life she has created with fiancé, Luca, or is her perception changing?  Can Lisa find happiness by walking down the aisle or will her inner demons disrupt the illusion.

She wrote, produced and starred in the short film called “Got to Give it Up” and has performed her own writing in several London theatres including Union Theatre.
