When a young black man, Brian, dies in police custody, it sends shock waves across the community. Reeling from his death, Brian’s family struggle to make sense of their loss, whilst pursuing a lengthy court battle to clear his name.
Based on the lived experience of creator Urbain Hayo, AKA Urban Wolf, and conceived by him, this stark and timely new play, written by Tom Wainwright and performed in March 2017 at London's Ovalhouse theatre, explores how young black men are slipping through the cracks in society. How do you fight for justice in a system where nobody is on your side?
This is the playtext of the 2017 production, and includes author and director statements, and cast and creative biographies.
