This bold production holds a magnificent cast that seamlessly depicts social issues in 90-minutes. Set in a tense, political climate, the play explores themes of cultural identity and police state corruption. A must-watch for those who love good political narratives.
During a time a political tension, the play follows a young cabbie who picks up a young male hitchhiker who is making his way across Europe. Two plainclothes policemen trigger a series of events that lead to a debate on corruption and cultural identity. When a surveillance case is investigated, a truly grim reflection of society is portrayed on stage that is bound to move its audience.

Gbadamosi’s 90-minute piece sounds as though it might be about knife crime, but has a broader subject: the suspicions and antagonism that pervade contemporary Britain.
