The Making of a Monster

A Wales Millennium Centre Production

9 – 19 November 2022

Weston Studio

A grime-theatre mash-up by Connor Allen

Too black for my white friends, but too white for my Black friends. Growing up mixed race in Newport, I fell into a cloud of grey.

Absent Black father, ducking the police, working out what it means to be a man. I was struggling to find my place in the world and in danger of spiralling out of control. Then one moment changed my life.

Created from grime culture and inspired by Dizzee Rascal, Wiley, Skepta and Kano, The Making of a Monster is my story.
