This is just me joining the family business exposing massive global injustice.

Latinx Women from South London take centre stage and dare you to call them invisible.

Vogue balls.

When four different worlds collide, identity, history and status become the driving forces to unveiling the biggest money laundering scandal in history.


From not having a box to tick to challenging toxic stereotypes, as Alejandra, Lucia, Honey and Catalina risk everything to expose a multinational bank, 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.

Co-Created by Valentina Andrade, Elizabeth Alvarado, Lucy Wray & Tommy Ross-Williams, and rooted in the lives and experiences of Valentina Andrade & Elizabeth Alvarado, this edition was published to coincide with the Brixton House production in London, June 2023.

Paperback, 88 pages
