The Westbridge

by Rachel De-lahay

The Westbridge Top / Details
Tickets are still available. 'Pay What You Like' tickets are available on the door at the Bussey Building for every performance. Peckham Box Office opens 2 hours before each performance. The accusation of a Black teenager sparks disturbance on the South London streets. While tensions rise, a couple from very different backgrounds navigate the minefield between them and their families. The Westbridge explores the intricacies of living side by side, and looks at racial and cultural distinctions with humour and bite. Rachel De-lahay came to the Royal Court through the Unheard Voices Writers Programme, which aims to support and develop writers whose voices are under-represented on British stages. Rachel was part of the group aimed at young Muslim writers. The Westbridge is her first play, which, while still unproduced, was jointly awarded the Alfred Fagon Award last year. Clint Dyer directs. As a director, his credits include the hit show The Big Life, (West End & Theatre Royal Stratford East) and an award-winning short film Pukka. The Westbridge is part of the Royal Court's Jerwood New Playwrights programme, supported by the Jerwood Charitable Foundation. It was developed with the support of the Paul Hamlyn Foundation as part of Unheard Voices: A Paul Hamlyn Foundation Project. "Directions to the Bussey Building": www.royalcourttheatre.com/local/directions/ Theatre Local is sponsored by Bloomberg.
