The Darkest Part of the Night Tickets
As Shirley and Dwight bury their mother, they remember their upbringing in 1980s Chapeltown, Leeds differently. In the height of racial discrimination, police brutality and poverty, the struggle for survival ripped through their family.
Dwight was discovering what it meant to be an autistic young black boy in a world determined never to understand him. Shirley was desperately trying to forge her own independence away from unfair expectations at school and home.
Now as adults, they need to bring together the fractured pieces of their past to move forward together.
Nancy Medina directs Zodwa Nyoni’s gripping and heartfelt drama that explores the complexities and beauty of what it really means to care for one another.
