The National Theatre is resuming socially-distanced live performances with Death of England: Delroy
Death of England: Delroy (21 Oct-28 Nov) is a new one-person play at the National Theatre by Clint Dyer and Roy Williams.
It is directed by Dyer and performed by Giles Terera.
Death of England: Delroy
Death of England: Delroy is set in London in 2020. It follows on from Dyer and Williams’ play Death of England.
The new play takes on the perspective of Delroy, the best friend of the prequel’s protagonist Michael.
As a Black working class man, Delroy is forced to confront moments of his past and his relationship with Britain following an arrest on the way to the hospital.
Dyer says, ‘In telling Delroy’s story, we hope to take audiences on an illuminating journey into the Black British psyche and realities of a ‘tolerant’ England in the wake of the Black Lives Matter movement.’
Terera is the first artist to return to work at the National Theatre since London’s spring lockdown.
To keep everyone safe, the audience will be spaced out. In addition to this, the theatre also has a new entrance to help create a one-way system.
Due to the government’s announcement regarding tier two restrictions in London, it is advisable to call ahead for current show status.
However, if there are changes to the performance schedule you will receive a refund.
