South London, present day (ish) the inner-city bustles ad sweats as estates sit proudly among blue skies. Summer is around the corner and the heat seems to cast a spell on the asphalt. In this corner of the world developers are circling and the residents feel left to their own devices. Two school girls, Azalea and her best friend Tosin have an encounter that will change the course of their story when a towering garden springs from the crack in their estate bringing Azalea closer to the community she barely knew and to the ancestral plane thats sits between our worlds. The Garden speaks of finding your way back to your roots and loving there.

What projects do you have coming up?
I’m writing a musical at the moment called The Garden. It’s about a girl who plants a seed in the middle of her estate and a whole garden grows. It explores communities and how we can take care of each other.
