Red Pitch opens at the Bush Theatre on 16 February running to 26 March 2022.

The cast is Kedar Williams-Stirling (Sex Education), Emeka Sesay (Pretty Red Dress) and Francis Lovehall (Death on the Nile).

Three lifelong friends Omz, Bilal, and Joey are playing football. Like they always have. Living out dreams of football stardom. Beyond their football pitch, local shops are closing, old flats are being demolished as new flats shoot up, some residents struggle to stay while others rush to leave.

When a small football pitch has been a home from home, a place you’ve laughed, fought, and forged friendships, what happens when it’s under threat?

The production is directed by Daniel Bailey with assistant director Monaé Robinson, set and costume designer Amelia Jane Hankin, lighting designer Ali Hunter, sound designer Khalil Madovi, movement director Dickson Mbi, fight director Kev McCurdy, costume supervisor Megan Rarity, dramaturg Deirdre O’Halloran, casting director Heather Basten CDG and casting assistant Fran Cattaneo.
