About the Show Less...

Award-winning playwright Bola Agbaje's latest play centres on three 20-somethings trying to beat the system. Read More >

Off The Endz centres on David, Kojo and Sharon, who grew up on a London estate. Now in their mid-20s, they are eyeing another kind of life. But how do you choose the right path when temptation lies around every corner? If your emotional or financial debt is sky high, how do you buy your way out?

Bola Agbaje’s savvy play asks whether being out of the system might be just as good as being in it.

Agbaje is a product of the Royal Court’s young writers programme and previously wrote Gone Too Far! for the venue, which won a Laurence Olivier Award in 2008. Her other plays include Detaining Justice, which played at the Tricycle theatre in autumn 2009.

Off The Endz is suitable for ages 14+
