National Theatre, Southbank

The National Theatre is back!
Playwrights Roy Williams and Clint Dyer follow up their hard-hitting critique of white-English identity, Death of England, with what promises to be a similarly tough monologue about the experience of being Black and working class in Britain.
The first London theatre response to Black Lives Matter, a play described by the National’s artistic director Rufus Norris as explosive and timely.
‘Hamilton’ star Giles Terera stars as Delroy, the best mate of Michael, the deeply troubled protagonist of the original Death of England.
The Olivier Theatre has been reimagined and reconfigured to accommodate an audience of 500 per show with distancing, and excitingly, 200 of the 500 tickets will be fixed at £20. On sale October 2nd. Not to be missed!
