Writer Dzifa Benson will adapt Roger Robinson’s TS Eliot Poetry Prize winning collection of poems A Portable Paradise. The play, which explores what it means to care, reunites Benson with Director Adeola Yemitan, who appeared in her 2021 adaptation of Othello. Benson is an award-winning multi-disciplinary artist who as a poet has been awarded a Jerwood Foundation Fellowship and shortlisted for the inaugural James Berry Prize in 2020 and the Bridport Poetry Prize in 2023. Her work as a dramatist includes a critically acclaimed adaptation of Othello for NYT starring Francesca Amewudah-Rivers in the title role and Locked Down/Locked In, which was awarded Best Original Script at Athens International Monthly Art Film Festival.
