“Four talented performers Patricia Foster, Zena Edwards, Suléy Muhidin and Janett Plummer reveal a window into their lives through moving, funny, fierce, and inspirational poetry. South London life – sometimes frustrating, often surprising – forms a consistent thread through the poems as they reflect global worries, personal hopes and diverse backgrounds.
