Conceived by multi award-winning writer Archie Maddocks and directed by Talawa’s Artistic Director, Michael Buffong, the comedy-drama rejoices in the familiar comforts of London’s diverse communities, whilst confronting how the rapid pace of change can erode deeply held traditions.

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. Shortlisted for both the Bruntwood Prize and Alfred Fagon Award, A Place for We explores the need to survive in an ever-changing London community whilst battling with the desire to stay true to family, heritage and tradition.

Park Theatre and Talawa Theatre Company are delighted to stage the World Premiere of this powerful production, which holds a mirror up to London’s communities in the wake of the Windrush scandal and attempts to uncover the one thing they all have in common: their beating heart.
