Actress, writer and broadcaster Phina Oruche will be taking her one-woman show Identity Crisis to Edinburgh Festival Fringe this year.

Phina graduated from Edge Hill University in 2014 after completing her Masters degree in Media, and as part of her studies Phina wrote and performed Identity Crisis at the University’s Arts Centre.

Identity Crisis scrutinises the image and representation of black women in the media, and features nine characters: black, white, old, young, male, female; all of whom are having their own identity crises. The show explores identity struggles that are common to all of us, and it examines Phina’s own observations on what others have made of her identity in the media.

Based upon her own life story, Identity Crisis shows a different side to Phina than people have seen from her TV roles in Footballers’ Wives, Hollyoaks and NYPD Blue to name a few.

Phina’s show is on daily from 21st – 28th August 2016. Click here for more information and to book tickets.
