Some poems are better written in flesh . . . After Wall Street and Tahrir Square, after ISIS and the NSA, after Ferguson and Eric Garner: here come the poets. In a downtown poetry slam with a place on the team to be won, eight young poets prepare to do battle. But backstage it's all kicking off with love triangles, families to feed and wounds to rip open. And in the end, is it about winning - or finding the words that need to be said? Octagon received its world premiere at the Arcola Theatre, London, on 16 September 2015.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Colon's is clearly an individual, interesting voice . . . There are some pertinent, difficult subjects addressed without fear or timidity . . . Colon is a writer to watch. * Daily Telegraph on "bt i could only whisper" *
Colon's script includes some beautiful poetry. And there are certain moments that are so well acted, so poignant, that they bring tears to the audience's eyes. * New Statesman *
A beautifully sophisticated play . . . with humour, tenderness, rage and lust * Time Out on "bt i cd only whisper" *
A wrangling, gut-wrenching exploration of the competitive spirit . . . [Colon's] sense of showmanship imbues every scene. * What's On Stage *
Kristiana Rae Colon's play . . . is always driving at the connection between poetry and politics. . . . Octagon champions the power of words * Time Out London *
