The twin juggernauts of Hip-Hop and feminism are on a collision course. And Testament reckons he’s the guy to sort it out.

A rapper and world record holding Beatboxer, he thinks he’s a right-on kind of guy.

Then his daughter is born and suddenly he’s not so sure.

What will he discover as he starts to unpick his own prejudices? With a dose of wit, a knack for self-deprecation and a truck-load of honesty, Testament is ready to find out.

Expect beatboxing, spoken word, storytelling and hip-hop classics as you’ve never heard them before.

The Stage

A Roundhouse, West Yorkshire Playhouse, Royal Exchange and Camden People’s Theatre co-production.

Where I’m from, hardly anyone is exposed to the arts. There’s a load of talent but no guidance. Roundhouse changed my life.
