God's Property


Talawa Theatre Company, Soho Theatre and the Albany

Written by Arinze Kene
Directed by Michael Buffong


It's 1982. London is restless, gripped by spiraling unemployment and inner city riots. Ska beats dominate the airwaves and in a flat in Deptford, South London two brothers are re-united unexpectedly.

Sixteen year old, mixed race Onochie rules the family roost. His barely known brother Chima returns to make past wrongs right and to rekindle a relationship with his skinhead younger brother who no longer wants to be black.

Chima is not welcome in the area and only has a few hours to meaningfully connect with Onochie. But outside a hostile community has been alerted to his return. Chima has been blamed for the death of a white girl and the vitriolic community won't be satisfied until they deliver their rough justice.

Onochie faces the tough decision of siding with the community he has tried to belong to; or standing with the brother he doesn't know.
