Bush Theatre, Artistic Director Madani Younis will direct a contemporary revival of Leave Taking, Winsome Pinnock’s classic, award-winning play from 24 May to 30 June. Images by Helen Murray of the cast and writer in rehearsal are released today.
In Deptford, Del and Viv are soul-sick. Del doesn’t want to be at home – staying out late, 3pm-the-next-day late is more her thing. Viv scours her school books trying to find a trace of herself between their lines.
When Enid takes her daughters to the local ‘Obeah’ woman for some traditional Caribbean soul healing, secrets are spilled. There’s no turning back for Del, Viv and Enid as they negotiate the frictions between their countries and cultures.
The cast comprises Adjoa Andoh, Seraphina Beh, Nicholle Cherrie, Wil Johnson and Sarah Niles.
