The Accordion Shop by West London Free School

by Cush Jumbo
Sold out
Part of NT Connections
Mister Ellody has quietly kept his accordion shop going on his local high street for generations. One day, he steps out of his door and witnesses an extraordinary incident: hundreds of young people are surging onto the street, and they’ve all received the same text message on their phones which simply says “RIOT. THE ROAD. 7pm TONIGHT.”


Cush Jumbo is an award-winning actress and writer. Cush was nominated for an Olivier Award in 2014 for Outstanding Achievement in Affiliate Theatre for Josephine and I which she wrote and performed to rave reviews at the Bush Theatre.

Cush won the award for Best Actress at The Manchester Theatre Awards 2014 for her performance as Nora in A Doll’s House at The Royal Exchange. Prior to this Cush was nominated for an Olivier Award for her performance as Mark Antony in Julius Caesar at The Donmar Warehouse, and was awarded the prestigious Ian Charleson Award 2012 for her performance as the Shakespearean heroine Rosalind in Greg Hersov’s production of As You Like It at the Royal Exchange Theatre, Manchester.
