Talawa Theatre Company and Park Theatre’s Olivier Award-nominated A Place for We is being made available on Digital Theatre for five years in the UK.
This acclaimed production explores London’s communities over three very different generations. Following its successful, limited-run premiere on Windrush Day, will be available for more audiences across the country than ever before.
Trinidadian funeral director Clarence and fifth-generation pub owner George don’t want things to change – but everything around them is changing. This powerful production by Archie Maddocks explores the wake of the Windrush scandal and shifting communities, the traditions we choose to fight for and the ones we leave behind. In one moment laugh-out-loud and the next deeply moving, A Place for We looks at where we live, how we live and the people who struggle to live in the place they call home.
A Place for We was co-produced by Talawa, the UK’s outstanding Black theatre company, which champions theatre made by Black creatives and making theatre more accessible for diverse audiences across the country.
This moving production was nominated for Outstanding Achievement in Affiliate Theatre at the 2022 Olivier Awards, won the Off West End Award for best production ensemble and was originally filmed in October 2021.
Michael Buffong, Artistic Director and CEO of Talawa Theatre Company, comments, Following our June launch, we are proud that our Olivier Award-nominated production of A Place For We will continue to reach more audiences through the Digital Theatre platform for the next five years.
