A "concept album on stage", Stars is from theatre-maker Mojisola Adebayo.

Her quest is sparked by three encounters: a young neighbour who discloses a secret, an old friend who reveals she is intersex and a would-be lesbian lover in a launderette.

Told through one woman and a live DJ, with projected animation and captions, Stars is a Afrofuturist odyssey accessible for all.

It’s at Institute of Contemporary Arts, The Mall, St. James's, London April 13–May 4, Contact, Manchester May 9–11, Bristol Old Vic May 23–27, The Old Rep Theatre, Birmingham May 30–June 3, Northern Stage, Newcastle June 19–20 and Everyman Theatre, Liverpool June 22–24.
