Synopsis

'Everyone lived perfectly happily round here together before you young ones try to integrate and confuse things.'



The accusation of a Black teenager sparks disturbance on the South London streets. While tensions rise and local rioting starts, a couple from very different backgrounds navigate the minefield between them, their families and their disparate but coexisting neighbourhood.



Joint winner of the 2011 Alfred Fagon award (under its former title SW11), The Westbridge showcases an array of multiple voices. Presenting a microcosm of multicultural society, this depiction of London's melting-pot spans ethnicities, religions, generations and outlooks. A very real, convincing drama of human individuals underpins this ambitious, far-reaching and relevant play.



Picking apart an intricate tangle of cultures, religions and generations, The Westbridge showcases an array of voices from modern society with humour, style and bite.
