Tosin Cole (Doctor Who) and Heather Agyepong (The Power) star in this fierce new romance. A tribute to the enduring power - and fragility - of memory and love. Directed by Evening Standard Theatre Award winner Lynette Linton (Blues for an Alabama Sky), book now to experience the intense intimacy of Shifters. “It’s only in looking back that I realise we were always in motion, always morphing, always shifting. Weren’t we?” Tragedy brings Des and Dre crashing back into each other’s lives, carrying new secrets and old scars. Caught in the space between memory and reality, they must struggle to navigate the shifting borders that threaten to rewrite their past and reshape their future. An astonishing world premiere from the Olivier Award winning producers of Red Pitch, Misty and The P Word. Written by Benedict Lombe, who won the Susan Smith Blackburn Prize for her debut play, Lava. Praise for Lava at the Bush Theatre:
★★★★ ‘Luminous.’ The Guardian
★★★★ ‘Absolutely phenomenal.’ Time Out
★★★★ ‘Brilliant… a celebration of black strength and excellence.’ The Times
