Shadows
  • London Fringe

DONT YOU REALISE OUR HISTORYS ALL WEVE GOT LEFT.

IF THEY TAKE THAT FROM US THEN WHAT ARE WE?

JUST A BUNCH OF SHADOWS THEY CAN WALK ALL OVER

SHADOWS, a new play by Carguil Lloyd George Webley and directed by Kevin Michael Reed, explores the lives of three black inmates who have been placed in the same cell at Winson Green Prison, Birmingham, UK. Cultural baggage, trauma and family dysfunction have all played a part in each of their struggle to understand one another and the outside world.

Edmund (David Monteith), the calm fatherly presence, who been in and out of prison from an early age tries to assert his dominance over the others through his knowledge of black history. Balak (Pharaon El-Nur) appears to be the most level headed, a forthright secondary school English teacher, but can't to let go of his dark past. Chase (David Isiguzo) is the youngest and has great potential, however refuses to listen to his voice of reason and puts himself at risk of losing everything he's worked for.

Squire Lane Theatrical develops and produces socially critical and relevant stories for the stage to provoke dialogue and inspire action on 21st century issues. Squire Lane Theatrical in association with Baby Crow Productions recently completed a month long run at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2017 of 13 & Not Pregnant and WHORE: A Kids Play garnering 4 & 5 star reviews.

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.

Theatre MAD

Their UK and International grant-making strategy is based on five criteria that raise awareness, educate, and provide care and support for the most vulnerable in society. A host of fundraising events, including Bucket Collections, Late Night Cabarets, West End Eurovision, West End Bares and A West End Christmas continue to raise funds for projects both in the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa.
