Exciting Latinx cast announced

Four exciting young Latinx women have been announced as the cast in the world premiere of My Uncle is not Pablo Escobar at Brixton House this June – two of whom mark this as their professional debut.

Cecilia Alfonso-Eaton is one of the co-founders of Latinxcluded, Yanexi Enriquez is a London-based actor and dancer, who trained at Mountview Academy of Theatre Arts, Pia Laborde-Noguez’s has numerous credits on screen and stage and Nathaly Sabino is a Brazilian born English actor that grew up between Brazil and Manchester.

The world premiere of this new play co-written by Valentina Andrade, Elizabeth Alvarado, Lucy Wray & Tommy Ross-Williams challenges the toxic stereotypes of Latinx people - the 8th largest ethnic community in the UK and one of the fastest growing, but still not recognised as a category in the national census and other major bodies.

Inspired by the real-life story of a major multinational British highstreet bank laundering money for cartels, the show imagines how a powerful team of Latinx women could come together at great risk to themselves to expose the men profiting from crime in Latin America and seek justice.They confront the audience with what it means to be both Londoner and Latinx.  My Uncle is Not Pablo Escobar relishes in the seen and unseen of communities and systems so insidiously hidden and explores what it means to have a dual identity – your cultural heritage and your home city.
