A young London boy faces the rites of passages associated with turning into a man
In the shadows of concrete high rises, eleven year old Harri is walking on a tightrope towards manhood. Events quickly spiral out of his control and the world will never be the same again. Stephen Kelman's 2011 Man Booker prize shortlisted novel is electrifyingly adapted for stage for its West End premiere by award-winning playwright Gbolahan Obisesan. The NYT REP Company present this tender, funny and heart-breaking story inspired by one of the most powerful events in modern history. Under the inspired direction of National Youth Theatre Associate Director Anna Niland, Pigeon English looks at the sometimes harsh reality of adulthood in modern day Britain. The Ambassadors Theatre opened in 1913 with a production of Panthea, a play by Monckton Hoffe which ran for only 15 nights. Over 100 years later the venue has established itself as one of the premier go-to destinations for theatre lovers in the capital. ★★★★☆ – A Younger Theatre Runtime: 1 hour 30 minutes.
