The fabulous Ruth Rogers-Wright is back to once again dazzle as Nina Simone in playwright Neil Cole’s latest production Nina Simone: Liberian Days. The show will play at Prahran’s Chapel off Chapel from 7 February – 18 February 2018.

This is the second time Rogers-Wright and Cole have worked together, after the critically acclaimed Nina Simone: Black Diva Power, which was given two seasons in Melbourne and played to sold-out crowds at the Edinburgh Festival in 2016. Rogers-Wright is joined by renowned pianist Mark Fitzgibbon, who has played throughout Australia and internationally with many leading jazz artists.

Nina Simone: Liberian Days is a story of acceptance and freedom. Nina, for the first time in her life, was not a minority. She was free. I wanted to express the effects of freedom on a person and their music,” says playwright Neil Cole.
