A young British black girl of Jamaican descent whose parents are products of the Windrush in 1948, finds herself in a minority at her white, middle-class university and sets off on a journey to seek the truth behind her identity and the definition of home.

Exploring topics such as immigration, riots, the infamous carnival and even todays ‘banter’ ROUTE looks at external events that impose themselves on the girl’s life. ROUTE began experimenting with Actors Awareness in 2016. It then went into a development Lab with the Lyric Hammersmith. It recently had it’s first sold-out performance at The Purple Playhouse, as part of the Brighton Fringe Festival.

ROUTE, is a vibrant and thought-provoking, ensemble piece allowing plenty of room for play and interpretation. Mixing Caribbean themes such as reggae and hard food – it brings the audience into the world that our protagonist must face.
