There s five generations of tradition in these walls.
A pub. A funeral parlour. An urban-zen enoteca and conscious eatery. One building in Brixton tells the story of London s changing communities over three very different generations.
Trinidadian funeral director Clarence and fifth generation pub owner George don t want things to change. But everything around them is changing. Do they adapt to survive? Or stay true to their roots and risk it all& family, tradition, business?
In the wake of the Windrush scandal, Archie Maddocks bittersweet comedy holds a mirror up to the ever-changing face of London s communities in search of their common beating heart.
A Place for We was shortlisted in 2017 for both the Bruntwood Prize and Alfred Fagon Award, it was first performed as a staged reading at Talawa Firsts 2018 and the world premiere was directed by Talawa s Artistic Director Michael Buffong.
