Tanya Moodie (Trouble in Mind) and Elizabeth Berrington (Absent Friends) star in the UK Premiere of Joel Drake Johnson’s tense workplace drama Rasheeda Speaking.

In one of Chicago’s wealthiest hospitals, a white doctor tries to remove a black receptionist by enlisting her colleague as a spy. The women’s friendship quickly deteriorates and a chilling power struggle ensues. With the office becoming a battleground of passive aggression and paranoia, things spin wildly out of control.
