    Description"I keep trying to find something a bit exotic in my family tree. Best I could do was a great-grandma who looks a bit tanned in the old photos." US election night 2008. A smart inner-London 'village'. For white ex-lawyer Natasha, adoptive mother to two Ethiopian children, tonight is the ideal opportunity to get to know the small handful of other 'mothers of children of colour' at their smart private school. But as the Obamatinis start to flow, the middle-class veneer starts to crack and Natasha's carefully-planned social occasion quickly unravels. Lifting the lid on a stew of racial tensions and social embarrassments this is a hilarious, provocative and brilliantly insightful look at the new 'Beige Britain'.

    Author Information
    Sarah Rutherford has a first-class degree in English Language and Literature from Oxford University, and completed a PhD in English (Black Farce in Jacobean and 1960s Theatre) at Edinburgh University alongside a career as an arts journalist and broadcaster. She then trained as an actor at Guildford School of Acting and worked in television and theatre for over a decade. Sarah's first play, What You Do To People, was showcased at the Hampstead Theatre and led to her current position as Writer in Residence of Park Theatre. For Park, Sarah has written a new play, Allah in Neon, inspired by the 'N4 Stories' project in which Sarah and a team of actors trawled the local area for stories and characters. It is due to be produced at Park in 2014. Sarah's third play, Tonight Is Your Answer, opened the Angelic Tales season at Theatre Royal Stratford East in June 2013, starring Tara Fitzgerald. Her monologue La Barbe was performed at the Equal Writes event at the Tristan Bates Theatre in 2013. She was shortlisted for the Adrienne Benham award in 2012.
