“Regeneration and gentrification seem to follow each other as surely as night follows day. Who are the winners and losers? Who gets pushed out and who gets to stay? Those questions are at the heart of Tyrell Williams’ play set around a South London football pitch which has been a second home for three life-long friends growing up. But the place is changing, and the old haunts and flats are being demolished. Is there still a place where Omz, Bilal and Joey can feel that they belong and where their dreams can be acknowledged? Daniel Bailey directs a coming-of-age story about the challenges of change for communities in London.”

Overview

One of this year’s biggest theatrical successes is now available to watch online!

Red Pitch. South London. Three lifelong friends Omz, Bilal and Joey are playing football. Like they always have. Living out dreams of football stardom. Beyond their football pitch, local shops are closing, old flats are being demolished as new flats shoot up, some residents struggle to stay while others rush to leave. When a small football pitch has been a home from home, a place you’ve laughed, fought and forged friendships, what happens when it’s under threat?

A coming of age story about what it means to belong to a place. Directed by Bush Theatre Associate Artistic Director Daniel Bailey (The High Table), Tyrell Williams’ fast-paced and sharp-edged new play tells a powerful story about gentrification or regeneration and the impact of this relentless change on London’s communities.
