‘The way they’re changing endz is nuts.’
Red Pitch. South London. Three lifelong friends Omz, Bilal and Joey are playing football. Like they always have. Living out dreams of football stardom. Beyond their football pitch, local shops are closing, old flats are being demolished as new flats shoot up, some residents struggle to stay while others rush to leave. When a small football pitch has been a home from home, a place you’ve laughed, fought and forged friendships, what happens when it’s under threat?
★★★★★ “Remarkable. A next-level coming-of-age story.” The Stage
The fast-paced and sharp-edged new play from Tyrell Williams (#HoodDocumentary) tells a powerful story about gentrification or regeneration and the impact of this relentless change on London’s communities. It’s “smart, sophisticated new British playwriting at its best” (The Plays The Thing).
Don’t miss out on the return of the knockout cast Kedar Williams-Stirling (Sex Education), Emeka Sesay (Top Boy) and Francis Lovehall (Small Axe), in director Daniel Bailey’s “energetic, artfully staged production” (Evening Standard).
