UK: Out West

Pin It

From British Theatre

Lyric Hammersmith Theatre, London

From Friday 18 June until Saturday 24 July | Tickets from £10*

Three new plays by Tanika Gupta, Simon Stephens and Roy Williams
Co-directed by Rachel O’Riordan and Diane Page

Next month the Lyric Hammersmith Theatre reopens with Out West – the world premiere of three new short plays written by three of the UK’s leading playwrights.

Out West explores race, identity, belonging and hope rooted in multicultural England of the past and present.

Esh Alladi will play a young Gandhi in Tanika Gupta’s The Overseas Student, a sharp and witty reimagining of Gandhi’s formative student years in Victorian England, Tom Mothersdale will play new father Jack in Simon Stephens’ Blue Water and Cold and Fresh which confronts white male privilege in the wake of city lockdown living and Black Lives Matter protests and Ayesha Antoine will play security guard Donna in Roy Williams’ Go, Girl, a celebration of motherhood and Black female empowerment.

This production is a triple bill of plays all presented over the course of one evening. One ticket gives you access to all three plays.

Seating will be socially distanced with free exchange on tickets if needed so that you can book with confidence today!
