by Red Ladder Theatre Company, supported by Coliseum Theatre, Leeds Playhouse and Live at the library.

15-year-old Reece is roughly accosted by the police outside M&S. His young, Black teacher Gillian sees it all – but doesn’t question or intervene in the disturbing scene.

As the gravel embosses Reece’s face and the policeman’s knee digs into his back, his teacher stands frozen, with fears for her own safety engulfing her mind.

The consequences of her lack of action erupt the following day. Gillian finds herself locked in a classroom with her angry student. With no clear intent, Reece refuses to relinquish the key.

A gripping tussle of power and an urgent interrogation of racial identity, written by Nana-Kofi Kufuor and directed by Dermot Daly.
