Who are BEYOND THE CANON? Video Introduction from Simeilia Hodge-Dallaway & Sarudzayi Marufu

“It is an absolute honour to feature the plays Muhammad Ali and Me by Mojisola Adebayo, A Museum in Baghdad by Hannah Khalil and Acceptance by Amy Ng. All three plays have the ability to remain with you long after reading them and I am confident that you will be compelled to study, share and perform them – and, like me, be inspired to create your own form of activism.”

Simeilia Hodge-Dallaway

“I hope that as you journey through this book and supporting website, you will further awaken within you your agency. That you will reassess your journey, see the value in your actions to this moment, draw strength from your legacy and your knowledge of it, and grow bolder in your determination to impact the world moving forward.”
