By Rachel Mutombo
A police investigation, a Black Lives Matter protest and a secret threaten to tear a close-knit group of friends apart, as they fight to find their voices and discover what friendship, love and allyship really mean.
Rachel Mutombo is an award-winning actor and writer. She is a first generation Canadian of Congolese (DRC) descent. Her experience of growing up as a child of immigrants combined with her experience of living at the intersection of race and gender heavily influences her work as an artist. An acting graduate of the National Theatre School of Canada, some recent theatre performance credits include Antigone:方 (YPT) and School Girls; Or the African Mean Girls Play (Obsidian Theatre/Nightwood Theatre). Rachel’s first stage play, Vierge, was recently awarded the first place prize in Infinitheatre’s annual playwriting competition and is set to have its world premiere at Factory Theatre in April 2023. She was also recently awarded the inaugural IBPOC Commission from Persephone Theatre in Saskatoon and is developing a brand new play called Wake.
