Jamal Published by Oberon
Squad grad Jamal Gerald is being published by Oberon Books. Published under Oberon’s Modern Plays series and with an introduction by artist Selina Thompson, Idol is a daring and unapologetic examination of religion, pop culture and Black representation.
Who would you rather pray to? Beyoncé or white Jesus?
Jamal grew up Catholic in a Caribbean household, but would rather light a candle and worship celebrities than white saints. Combining African diasporic ritual, music and storytelling, Idol is a spiritual journey that asks what happens when you don’t see yourself represented – featuring a host of celebrity appearances.
You can also catch Jamal on tour this spring around the UK for the live version! Head over to our events page for more info.
