"Just a tweet? Just a tweet? Just a tweet? Have you been listening to anything that’s been coming out my mouth?"
In 2019, Kylie Jenner becomes the youngest ‘self-made’ billionaire in history. It’s 4am and Cleo — @INCOGNEGRO — is mad as hell. Self-made? Please. From the corner of her bedroom, she unleashes a tweetstorm which rapidly veers out of her control. When her best friend Kara tries to talk her down, the conversation turns inwards:. “I’m just saying,” she remarks, “You’re not perfect,” “And?” Cleo responds. “Neither are you.”
Premiering at London’s Royal Court Theatre in 2019 and receiving the Critics’ Circle Award for Most Promising Playwright and the Stage Debut Award for Best Writer, Jasmine Lee-Jones’ seven methods of killing kylie jenner is a knife-sharp debut, deftly dissecting the politics of friendship, cancel culture, colourism and cultural appropriation.
“Dynamite”, “high-octane” and “fearless”, dive into Basement Theatre for Silo’s long-awaited return to the stage this June. Featuring performances by Batanai Mashingaidze and Grace Bentley-Tsibuah, direction by Keagan Carr Fransch and design by Jane Hakaraia, Natasha Ovely of Starving Artists Fund and Paige Pomana.
