About the Show Less...

In 1982 London, a gripping drama of family tension and racial identitiy unfolds in a Deptford flat. Read More >

It’s 1982. London is restless, gripped by spiraling unemployment and inner city riots. Ska beats dominate the airwaves and in a flat in Deptford, South London two mixed race brothers are re-united.

Sixteen year old, Onochie rules the family roost. His barely known older brother Chima returns home to find that Onochie is a skinhead who chooses to no longer be black.

Chima is not welcome in the area and only has a few hours to meaningfully connect with his brother. But outside a hostile community has been alerted to his return. Chima has been blamed for the death of a white girl and the vitriolic community won’t be satisfied until it delivers its own rough justice.

Onochie faces the tough decision of siding with the community he has tried to belong to, or standing with the brother he doesn’t know.

God’s Property is a script that grew out of Soho Theatre’s Soho Six Writers Group in 2011. Writer Arinze Kene was a member of this vital part of our Writers programme that commissions new writing and brings it to the stage.
