About the Show Less...

A provocative look at the Black British experience and the need, or not, for solidarity. Read More >

Don Warrington in Statement Of RegretKwaku Mackenzie, founder of a Black policy think tank, hits the bottle after his father’s death. As media interest in the once dynamic institute fades, his team grows fractious and then, disastrously, Kwaku favours a young Oxford scholar over his own devastated son. When, in a vain attempt to regain influence, he publicly champions divisions within the Black community, the consequnces are shattering.
