The day has been created in response to My White Best Friend North, which took place at the Everyman in October 2021. Based on the original concept by Rachel De-Lahay, a series of personal letters by writers of colour from Liverpool explored the personal and political of the things we don’t dare say.

The letters were written and sealed, opened and read by actors live for the first time on the night. One of the letters, written by Keith Saha and read by Maxine Peake will be shared again on the day.

Everyman Connects continues the theatres’ journey of ongoing change as part of their Commitment to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion.

With thanks to Sumuyya Khader for the illustration, part of an original commission in 2020 which you can read more about here.
