TGRG have been appointed as the UK publicity team for a brand-new global audio play. The Color Purple Audio Experience (TCPAX) brings together actors from the United States, United Kingdom and Africa to create this special production of Alice Walker’s Pulitzer Award-winning book.
Recruiting acting talent from across the US, UK and Africa, this global production is co-produced by West End actor Malinda Parris and Broadway actor Joey Stone of OurSomewhere Digital Productions. It aims to raise money for charities on both sides of the Atlantic who advocate for Black womxn and girls.
The concept for this production was conceived on the popular voice-based social networking app, Clubhouse, which speaks to Parris and Stone’s ethos of using technology to revolutionise storytelling. Having never met and living across the world from each other, Parris and Stone are connected by their shared creative passions. They see this play as an opportunity to drive discussions around change and to break the typical conventions of theatre.
TGRG MD Juanita Rosenior states “From our initial conversation it was clear that this was something different. This production is a true example of how the pandemic made people challenge the status quo and forge innovative projects that transcend geography. Joey and Malinda are visionaries and I couldn’t say no. I look forward to working with the team.”
TGRG will work alongside US-based
publicist Mercy Chikowore.
The Color Purple Audio Experience launches later this year.
