So Many Reasons at Soho Theatre 


talking all things 


'Your body is yours, you can f**k who you want!'

Melisa is having a bit of a quarter life crisis. This bold, funny and endearing hour, explores the reasons why; starting with her mum, God and sex! Told by a first generation British Ghanaian woman- exploring cultural and generational shifts, religion and sexuality; this bold new show asks what happens when we realise mums don’t always know best? 

Having started it's journey headlining this years; Calm Down Dear, Festival of Feminism and touring the UK, Racheal will soon be bringing the show back.


Keep your eyes peeled for when she comes near you!


A frank, funny and provocative look at the trials of modern life as seen through the eyes of a young black woman. Inspired by Racheal’s own experiences, Portrait uses music, poetry, humour and dance to examine identity, role models and challenge cultural stereotypes.
