Watch this space introduces new faces and new voices. This month we met up with Aaron Lambert to hear about his one-man show ‘Candid’
BlackOutUK: Who are you?
Aaron: Someone trying to be the best they can be.
B: Where are you from?
B: And where are you really from?
Aaron: Lol. My grandparents were born in Jamaica
B: Don’t you hate that your first answer isn’t ever enough for some people – is that what Candid is about?
Aaron: When I moved to London I use to hate it but now I’m just prepared to answer in a way which ends further questioning.
B: What inspired you to create Candid?
Aaron: My life. My struggles. Also for a long time, a deep desire to have a real conversation.
B: This is your first show. How did you get to this point?
Aaron: I was doing what I wasn’t supposed to be doing for a long time and had to pay the price for that. I didn’t want to pay it no more. So I made a new choice. Put my pride aside and asked for help. Fortunately someone gave me that chance.
B: Why should our readers come and see Candid?
Candid is about a journey with self and all the other institutions and groups of people that we have to encounter along the way. I believe everyone black or white, straight or gay can take something from this show.
B: Who should our readers bring with them to see the show?
Aaron: Family. Friends. A loved one. Everyone!
B: How can they get hold of tickets?
Aaron: Just visit the Canada Water Theatre website – https://www.
B: What have you learned so far in putting Candid together?
Aaron: That I am my biggest obstacle and my mind is an amazing, complex place.
B: What’s next for Aaron Lambert – any plans for a tour?
I just want to complete Candid first. Let me complete this task and whatever the universe offers after that we shall see…
B: Do say . . .
What you feel
B: Don’t say . . .
What you don’t believe.
