“All that is needed are two persuasive, engaging performers to tell the story, and Kudzai Mangombe as Chantel and Tristan Waterson as Matthew work beautifully together…concise, authentic and thought-provoking” The Stage ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
If only he knew. If only he listened.
A tragic suicide. Two young Black lives are blown apart.
In the madness of grief, Matthew and Chantel find each other again.
As the clouds begin to clear they wonder what their shared future might hold.
I need to like myself; I need to have a proper life.
“A focussed, multi-layered glimpse into the lives of two young Black Britons that asks many vital questions.” Everything Theatre
ALL ROADS is the world premiere of a new play by Roy Williams (Death of England, Sing Yer Heart Out for the Lads), directed by Anastasia Osei Kuffour, (On the Ropes, Seeds, Typical, Cuttin’ It) which explores what it means to love, grieve and build your own future, being young Black and British today.
“… A spellbinding two-hander drama about two teens bonded by a trauma that both feel guilt about. It is piercingly well acted by the utterly natural Kudzai Mangombe & Tristan Waterson.” Mark Shenton
