In the latest play from award-winning playwright Roy Williams, set in 2011 and 1958, London is rioting…

Candice is ordered by her gang-leading boyfriend to lure Clint into a honeytrap. Haunted by her grandfather’s mistakes, she stands at a crossroads. Will she do as she’s told, or will she learn to be true to herself before history repeats itself? This modern tale for riotous times spans three generations, exploring race, family and misguided loyalty.

BAFTA-winning Roy Williams’ many plays include the widely acclaimed Sucker Punch (Royal Court), nominated for the Laurence Olivier Award for Best New Play in 2010. Other plays include Absolute Beginners (Lyric Hammersmith), Sing Yer Heart Out for the Lads (National Theatre) and Clubland (Royal Court).

In 2000 Williams was joint-winner of the George Devine Award and in 2001 he won the Evening Standard Award for Most Promising Playwright. He received an OBE for Services to Drama in the 2008 Birthday Honours List.

Presented as part of Theatre Centre’s 60th Birthday Tour.

Suitable for ages 14+
