“Here is the city that we live in
Notice that the city that we live in is alive
Analyse our city and you’ll find that our city even has bodily features
Our city’s organs function like any living creature
Our city is a living creature
And if you’re wise enough, you’ll know not all of us are blood cells…
Some of us are viruses.”

Arinzé delivers an epic, lyrical journey through the pulsating heart and underground soul of inner city London. An inventive blend of gig theatre, spoken word, live art and direct address, Misty confronts the assumptions and expectations underpinning the act of telling a story.

Misty is directed by Bush Theatre Associate Director Omar Elerian (NASSIM, One Cold Dark Night, Islands) and will feature an original musical score performed live during the show.

Our Misty Review

One thing Misty makes clear is that Arinzé Kene is an unstoppable modern performer: his wit emanates though raps, which flow with ease and anger; his movement is impassioned, while his demeanour is personable and pretty hilarious. He stars in this epic piece of gig theatre, his examination of the gentrification of the city he loves, and how to write a play about it.

Arinzé Kene interview - 'I'm trying to use Misty to push change in the West End'
Thursday, September 27, 2018

Currently in full-swing at Trafalgar Studios, Misty - Arinzé Kene’s musical onslaught on the gentrification of London and how to write a play about it - has just extended its West End run after its transfer from the Bush Theatre. And rightly so. Not only does he provide some insight and truths about this city and the theatre community that no one else is presenting on stage, but he does so with a fluid fusion of rap, grime, poetry and visuals. He is making people sit up and listen to what he has to say, while making diverse audiences feel like the West End has something for them.  

Arinzé Kene’s Misty transfers to Trafalgar Studios
Friday, June 29, 2018

Arinzé Kene’s hit play Misty is set to transfer to Trafalgar Studios following a sell-out premiere run at the Bush Theatre earlier this year. Kene has previously been seen in the Old Vic production of the Bob Dylan musical Girl from the North Country, and One Night in Miami at the Donmar Warehouse, while his writing credits include good dog and God’s Property. A blend of gig theatre, spoken art and direct address, the piece is described as a lyrical journey ‘through the pulsating heart and underground soul of inner city London’.
