About the Show Less...

When two brothers from different continents go down the street to buy a pint of milk, they lift the lid on a disunited nation where everyone wants to be an individual but no one wants to stand out from the crowd. Read More >

After a successful run at the Jerwood Theatre Upstairs in 2007, the production is revived in this larger venue.

Yemi and Ikudayisi are brothers, but they've grown up in different worlds – Yemi on a South London estate, and Ikudayisi in Nigeria. But when Ikudayisi comes to stay, the two worlds overlap and Yemi is forced to re-think is place in the world. What starts as a simple shopping trip explodes into an exploration of a disunited nation where everyone wants to be an individual but no one wants to stand out from the crowd.

Bola Agbaje's comic, astute Olivier-award nominated play about identity, history and culture depicts a world where respect is always demanded but rarely freely given.
