The Orange Prize-winning novel Small Island, by Andrea Levy, comes to life in an epic theatre adaptation, which explores the arrival of the Windrush Generation to the UK. Following the losses of World War II, Britain was in dire need of laborers, prompting a campaign to entice people from the countries of the British Empire and Commonwealth to immigrate to the UK. From today's perspective, the arrival of the ship, HMT Empire Windrush, is considered a major landmark not only for UK’s recovery from the turmoil of war, but also for the establishment of a modern British multicultural society. Windrush Day is celebrated in the UK each June 22 with exhibitions, church services and cultural events. Filmed live on stage as part of National Theatre Live’s 10th birthday.
National Theatre Live is co-presented by OCCC and CityRep Theatre.
