My Uncle Is Not Pablo Escobar

7 June-24 June

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.

The Hale and Brixton House presents


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.
