Green Leaves Fall

Brixton, 1981. In the aftermath of the riots, 14 year old Kieran Brown finds himself in unfamiliar surroundings as he is adopted by an upper class family in Oxford. We follow his journey as he strives to fit into this new environment, as his classmates struggle to accept this new face and as he tries to find his identity.

Just as Kieran starts to believe he has found his place he leaves school and discovers it’s not as easy as he thinks. This play explores some of the most pressing social issues of our time – inequality, unemployment and radicalisation. This is especially relevant in light of recent events in Baltimore, St Louis and the rise of UKIP here in the UK.
