Small Island 

Adapted by Helen Edmundson

★★★★★   One of the most important plays of the year. Superb production. Outstanding performances. Andrea Levy’s epic makes momentous theatre. “The Guardian FULL REVIEW

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.

★★★★★ “Epic and inspiring. Exceptional performances. Small Island has found its ideal home.” Daily Telegraph FULL REVIEW

★★★★★”Extraordinary. Charming performances. Spectacular adaptation of Andrea Levy’s Windrush novel.” The Observer

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.
