She is a strong, independent, black woman. She has a roof over her head. She has food in her fridge. She lives a good life. She’s also a little bit sad, a lot of the time. She doesn’t understand why.

Following her 5-star solo show, WHITE, Koko Brown brings you the second instalment of the Colour Trilogy, GREY. A candid show exploring depression and black women’s mental health. 

Blending spoken word and vocal looping, GREY is fully British Sign Language integrated and contains sensitive content.
