'Entertaining...revealing, shocking' BERNARDINE EVARISTO
'Sublime' CANDICE CARTY-WILLIAMS
Actor and director Zawe Ashton brings us a unique look at life, work and the absurdities of today's world
Zawe Ashton has been acting since she was six. She has played many different roles, from 'cute little girl' to 'assassin with attitude', Oscar Wilde's Salome to St Trinian's schoolgirl by way of Fresh Meat's Vod.
In Character Breakdown, Zawe scrolls through a version of her life. Or is it a version of her art? Or something in between. In it, she encounters glamour, horror, absurdity and questions like: is a life spent more on performance than reality any life at all?
