Stranger  by Alesha Bhakoo

Just one of seven pieces combined to form monolog 2, our new selection of fresh writing from within the Chickenshed community. Showing at Chickenshed from 12 February until 2 March.

“In between is an unnerving place to exist…”

Stranger follows the story of a young woman navigating the pitfalls and challenges of living as a second-generation immigrant. We journey with her as she attempts to resolve her internal conflict regarding her dual identity. Is it possible to combine the multiple lenses we use to view people, in order to understand them as a whole identity as opposed to disjointed parts of one?
