“Acquah (is) a talented writer and a formidable actor with the kind of emotional dexterity that allows her to inhabit role after role with engaging intensity.”

-The Stage

“Thoughtful and impeccably written.”

-A View from the Balcony, reviewing i stopped…when by Nicole Acquah

“an honest, explorative, warm piece…a lovely addition to the British African canon.”

-TheatreFullStop, reviewing Sankofa by Nicole Acquah

“A mix of impressive writing, gripping drama and political challenge, I Stopped… .When. is a contemporary play like no other, and may well be one of the most thought-provoking plays you have the chance to see at this year’s VAULT festival.”

– A Younger Theatre

“The poetry in this show is magic. Each character’s “style” is well differentiated and the poems are fantastic. Powerful, moving, clever.”

-Velvet Box Office, reviewing i stopped…when by Nicole Acquah

“A cleverly written and passionately performed bombardment.”

-Theatre Bubble, reviewing For a Black Girl by Nicole Acquah

“Acquah is a very talented poet; her writing was almost too personal to intrude upon…It was raw, it was real. The tales of interfaith relationships, conflicting identities and conforming to societal expectations were well thought through and beautifully executed by all three actors.”
