Kharmel Cochrane Castings

Saturday’s Child Productions & talkback are adapting the sellout one woman play ‘Halfbreed’ which was written and performed by Natasha Marshall at the Soho Theatre in 2017. The Channel 4 Blap is written by Natasha & Gemma Marshall. It is a coming of age piece about a mixed race girl growing up in a remote village in Wiltshire. A story of being other and realising that you are different not just because of the way you look but by the aspirations you have.

Shooting W/C 23rd Sept on location in London.
