Small Island (NT Live) (15)

Small Island (NT Live)

Andrea Levy’s Orange Prize-winning novel 'Small Island' comes to life in an epic new theatre adaptation. Filmed live on stage as part of National Theatre Live’s 10th birthday.


'Small Island' embarks on a journey from Jamaica to Britain, through the Second World War to 1948 – the year the HMT Empire Windrush docked at Tilbury. The play follows three intricately connected stories. Hortense yearns for a new life away from rural Jamaica, Gilbert dreams of becoming a lawyer, and Queenie longs to escape her Lincolnshire roots. Hope and humanity meet stubborn reality as the play traces the tangled history of Jamaica and the UK. A company of 40 actors take to the stage of the National Theatre in this timely and moving story. 220m inc Interval
