The Red Ladder Theatre Company will be bringing a story tackling racial identity, by Nana-Kofi Kufuor, to the Swindon Arts
Centre this October.

The performance will take place on Tuesday 11 October, at 7.30pm. 

A spokesperson for the show described the plot: "15 year-old Reece is roughly accosted by the police outside M&S. His teacher Gillian watches as his face is pressed into the wet gravel with a policeman’s knee in his back, frozen out of fear for her own safety.

"The next day Reece locks them both in her classroom, refusing to relinquish the key. He wants her to pay – and to fully understand the pain her inaction has caused."

The recommended age for audience members is 14-plus. Content warnings include distressing themes, and strong and racially sensitive language.
