Red Pitch

Red Pitch, the smash-hit sold-out story of brotherhood, returns to the Bush Theatre for three weeks only.

Experience the full-throttle power of one of the hit productions of our anniversary year performed by the original cast. Kedar Williams-Stirling, Emeka Sesay and Francis Lovehall play three football-obsessed teens in director Daniel Bailey’s “energetic, artfully staged production” (Evening Standard).

‘The way they’re changing endz is nuts.’

Red Pitch. South London. Three lifelong friends Omz, Bilal and Joey are playing football. Like they always have. Living out dreams of football stardom. Beyond their football pitch, local shops are closing, old flats are being demolished as new flats shoot up, some residents struggle to stay while others rush to leave.

When a small football pitch has been a home from home, a place you’ve laughed, fought and forged friendships, what happens when it’s under threat?

The fast-paced and sharp-edged play by Tyrell Williams tells a powerful story of gentrification versus regeneration and the impact of this relentless change on London’s communities.
