About the event

Join us as our Young Company takes audiences on an explorative journey with their unique interpretation of this important play, exploring and exposing our History and that of The Windrush Generation as well as the effects on the generations that have come both before and after.

Brought to you in partnership with The National Theatre as part of their National Theatre Connections 2024 project.

Set in a senior common room, in a prominent university, a group of 1st year undergraduates are troubled, not by the weight of their workload, but by a ‘noisy’ ghost. So they do what any group self-respecting and intelligent university students would do in such a situation – they get out the Ouija Board to confront their spiritual irritant and lay them to rest – only to be confronted by the full weight of Britain’s colonial past – in all its gory glory.

This production is not just a play—it's an experience that challenges perceptions and will spark new conversations about the pain and enduring legacy of history and the power of resilience.

Content Warning: This play features bad language, racial slurs as direct historical quotes and exploration of difficult themes such as the Massacre of The Zong.

This play is recommended for ages 12 and up. Younger children will not be admitted
