Park Theatre and Talawa Theatre Company proudly present the World Premiere of A Place for We by Archie Maddocks, Directed by Michael Buffong

A funeral parlour. 

A pub. 

An urban-zen enoteca and conscious eatery. 

  • “There’s five generations of tradition in these walls.”

  • One building in Brixton tells the story of London’s changing communities over three very different generations.

  • Trinidadian funeral director Clarence and fifth generation pub owner George don’t want things to change. But everything around them is changing. Do they adapt to survive? Or stay true to their roots and risk it all ... family, tradition, business?

    In the wake of the Windrush scandal, Archie Maddocks' bittersweet comedy holds a mirror up to the ever-changing face of London’s communities in search of their common beating heart.

    A Place for We was shortlisted in 2017 for both the Bruntwood Prize and Alfred Fagon Award, it was first performed as a staged reading at Talawa Firsts 2018 and is directed by Talawa’s Artistic Director Michael Buffong.
