The High Table

5.0

In a touching tale of acceptance and love, accomplished playwright and director Temi Wilkey pulls out all the stops as she deals with complex ideas of homosexuality and how it is viewed by older generations! This brilliant family drama forges its own unique narrative as it contrasts archaic perceptions of love with an emerging idea of universal acceptance.

Why Watch The High Table

While homosexuality is gradually emerging as an accepted norm in several nations across the globe, it is no secret that a sizable portion of the older generation continues to struggle to come to terms with its implications in society. This reluctance is especially magnified when they are forced to accept the sexual identity or orientation of their own siblings and children. Temi Wilkey perfectly captures this dynamic with her compelling storytelling and profound character development.

Temi Wilkey is a celebrated director and actor who is well-known for co-founding the Drag King Company, Pecs. From her extraordinary presentation of The Comedy of Errors at the National Theatre to her Hamlet and Cymbaline for the Royal Shakespeare Company, Wilkey is considered to be amongst the most promising upcoming directors of the decade.

The Story

Tara and Leah are in love with each other, and they cannot keep it a secret from their parents any longer. Their dresses have been bought, the venue has been decided, and all the guests have been invited. Their wedding is an occasion for gaiety and frolic, but the couple’s euphoria is not shared by Tara’s Nigerian parents. They refuse to bless the marriage for fear of angering their ancestors.

High above the clouds of London, three of Tara’s ancestors are stirred from their slumber by the developments on the surface. They watch as Tara’s relationship with her family worsens and family secrets are spilt unchecked. Will Tara’s family make it through these troubling times? Can Tara bring about a shift in her parents’ unyielding stance? Will Tara and Leah finally be blessed by the old couple? Find out in this vivid exploration of family dynamics and homosexuality.
