Debbie Tucker Green’s previous plays for the Royal Court include a profoundly affectionate, passionate devotion to someone (-noun), hang, truth & reconciliation, and random.
“Marchin’ days is over man.”
Patience is running out, times have changed.
And progress isn’t enough.
Black British. African American.
“Change don’t give-a-fuck
change gone do its thing with or without you.”
Generational friction, slavery laws and police protocol all come under scrutiny in a stirring three-part study of oppression
An impassioned play about stalled progress
The terrible sense of stasis, of fear, is animated by the passion and power of all the protagonists
An uncompromising, poetic examination of black history, racial politics and protest
This is probably the most powerful current play about racism, and it really is a difficult watch
There is no shortage of words in this three-part work and, poetic as some of them may be, not all of them seem necessary
Dense, difficult brilliance from debbie tucker green
Beautiful theatrical invention meets crass identity politics
Debbie tucker green’s new piece balances contained anger with meticulous detail
