Newcomers Dilated Theatre present Barrie Keefe's play about a black man detained by two racist police officers on the night of the General Election. Read More >

Dilated Theatre present Barrie Keeffe’s intensely powerfully play SUS.

1979: The eve of Margaret Thatcher’s landslide victory. Delroy, a young black man, is brought to an East London Police interview room on what he thinks is SUS.

Two police officers, Karn and Wilby have other ideas.

SUS, a shocking and disturbing account of overt racism and the abuse of police power, is unfortunately still powerfully relevant today.

Newly formed Dilated Theatre, in producing this modern classic, pose the questions: Has anything changed? What are the legacy of the riots of 2011 and even further; where is the legacy of the Olympics that gave us all a summer of hope?
