Small Island embarks on a journey from Jamaica to Britain, through the Second World War to 1948 – the year the HMT Empire Windrush docked at Tilbury.
The play follows three intricately connected stories.
Hortense yearns for a new life away from rural Jamaica, Gilbert dreams of becoming a lawyer, and Queenie longs to escape her Lincolnshire roots. Hope and humanity meet stubborn reality as the play traces the tangled history of Jamaica and the UK.
A company of 40 actors take to the stage of the National Theatre in this timely and moving story.
Adapted by Helen Edmundson and based on Andrea Levy’s Orange Prize-winning novel; Small Island comes to life in an epic new theatre adaptation.
Experience the play in cinemas, filmed live on stage as part of National Theatre Live’s 10th birthday.
