Nina Simone: Liberian Days is the story of the great Nina Simone’s three years in the African State of Liberia.

Having seen the dream of equal rights for African Americans lapse before her eyes in 1947 she decided to go to a place where, for the first time in her life, she was part of a black majority. With her usual gusto and zest for life, she embraced Liberia in every respect. The men, the music, the sundowns and beaches. She sang in coffee shops and bars, loving every minute of it. Most importantly she enjoyed the society she was in because they were all black. Her music for those three years was never better, achieving highs she had never achieved.

Ruth Rogers-Wright returns for this new play, after having performed as Nina at the Edinburgh Festival in 2016.
