“It’s only in looking back that I realise we were always in motion, always morphing, always shifting. Weren’t we?”
Des and Dre. Destiny and Dream.
Young. Gifted. Black.
Rivals. Friends. Lovers.
She left. He stayed.
Now, tragedy brings Des and Dre crashing back into each other’s lives, carrying new secrets and old scars. Caught in the space between memory and reality, they must struggle to navigate the shifting borders that threaten to rewrite their past and reshape their future.
A fierce romance for anyone desperate for a different kind of love story, Shifters is a tribute to the enduring power – and fragility – of memory and love.
Starring Tosin Cole (Doctor Who) and Heather Agyepong (The Power), this surprising and playful world premiere is a new Bush Theatre commission written by Benedict Lombe (Lava, winner of the Susan Smith Blackburn Prize for Playwriting) and directed by Bush Theatre Artistic Director, Lynette Linton (August in England, Clyde’s).
