Some Of Us Exist In The Future

By Nkenna Akunna
Published in volume Papatango Plays
  • Papatango New Writing Prize - 2021

Fresh off the plane from the UK, Chiamaka is new to Brooklyn and its extremes. She's new to queer dating, to the realities of being an immigrant. Most of all, she's new to the voices of the gods…

Utterly original, wryly funny and always gripping, Nkenna Akunna's play Some Of Us Exist In The Future follows one woman's search for a place to belong in a world that's not all it seems.

Joint winner of the 2021 Papatango New Writing Prize, it was produced and premiered by Papatango and English Touring Theatre in 2021 as an audio play, presented to audiences via specially designed audio stations that toured UK theatres.

It is published in the volume Papatango Plays: Three Prize-Winning Plays, alongside Ghost Stories from an Old Country by Tajinder Singh Hayer and The Silence and The Noise by Tom Powell.
