Retrograde

The Golden Age of Hollywood. Behind closed doors, aspiring actor Sidney Poitier is offered a lucrative contract that could make him a superstar. But what is he willing to do to achieve fame?

From the writer of award-winning, sold-out, For Black Boys Who Have Considered Suicide When The Hue Gets Too Heavy, Ryan Calais Cameron’s new play based on a true event in 1950’s Hollywood explores the reality of a Black actor’s journey to become one of the world’s most influential voices.

Directed by Kiln Associate Director Amit Sharma (The Boy with Two Hearts), this explosive world premiere explores a moment in a career which paved ways and changed minds and perceptions, cementing the legacy of a Hollywood icon.
