Royal Court · 25 OCT - 24 NOV

Show has ended. Seen the show? Review it on Stagedoor.

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.
Here. There.

“Change don’t give-a-fuck
change gone do its thing with or without you.”

Critic reviews

Generational friction, slavery laws and police protocol all come under scrutiny in a stirring three-part study of oppression

The Guardian

An impassioned play about stalled progress

The Independent

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

The Stage

This is probably the most powerful current play about racism, and it really is a difficult watch

The Arts Desk

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

The Times

Dense, difficult brilliance from debbie tucker green

Time Out

Beautiful theatrical invention meets crass identity politics

The Telegraph

Debbie tucker green’s new piece balances contained anger with meticulous detail

The Financial Times
