Michaela Coel has been one to watch on the London arts scene for quite some time now. The last time I saw her perform live was in 2011 at the Tabernacle in Westbourne Park – a popular venue for spoken word events back in the day! Since then, Coel has gone on to do big things, including creating a one-woman play for the National Theatre, entitled ‘Chewing Gum Dreams’ which E4 went on to make into a minisode, and most recently a full E4 drama series entitled ‘Chewing Gum’ – due to hit our screens early October 2015.
The Evening Standard caught up with Miss Coel for an interview READ HERE. Well done Ms Coel!
