The Overseas Student
by Tanika Gupta
London. 1888

An 18-year-old Gandhi has just arrived from India to study Law

Miles from home, his wife and his family, we see him navigate a time of uncertainty, growth and opportunity

As he builds a new life, he explores the joys of money, food and women whilst facing the struggles of class and imperialism

Gupta's sharp and profound play is an insight into the teenage years of a man we know will grow up to be one of the most significant figures in history

Blue water and cold and fresh
by Simon Stephens
London. 2020

A walk back in time

A walk that may change everything he's ever believed

In the wake of city lockdown living and the Black Lives Matter protests, one man's journey across London raises difficult truths he has to confront

The death of a loved one

His father's racism

His own white privilege

This heartfelt piece explores what it means to be a father, husband and son

Go, Girl
by Roy Williams
London. 2020

Working as a security guard at Westfield and a mother to a teenage daughter, Donna sees her life as unremarkable

Why have things not turned out how she pictured when she was a young girl, inspired by the words of Michelle Obama?

The hope and excitement she once felt has now become isolation and judgement of the choices she has made

Until one night Donna gets a call from her daughter that makes her rethink her entire life

As their bravery and humanity is tested, Donna realises just how remarkable they both truly are

A celebration of Black women, everyday heroism and female resilience
