DESCRIPTION:

A company of 40 actors brings Andrea Levy’s award winning  novel to life.

Andrea Levy’s Orange Prize-winning novel comes to life in an epic new theatre adaptation.

Small Island embarks on a journey from Jamaica to Britain, through the Second World War to 1948 – the year the HMT Empire Windrush docked at Tilbury.

The play follows three intricately connected stories. Hortense yearns for a new life away from rural Jamaica, Gilbert dreams of becoming a lawyer, and Queenie longs to escape her Lincolnshire roots. Hope and humanity meet stubborn reality as the play traces the tangled history of Jamaica and the UK.

A company of 40 actors take to the stage of the National Theatre in this timely and moving story.

Small Island is BBFC rated 15 – strong language and occasional use by the characters of language which is racially offensive.

Epic and inspiring. Exceptional performances. Daily Telegraph
