NW Trilogy Tickets

NW Trilogy Information

NW Trilogy is powerful, funny and epic and shows us how we can change the world from our doorstep. NW Trilogy is at the Kiln Theatre in September 2021.

Set amongst the vibrant, intense cacophony of North West London, NW Trilogy is a collection of three vivid stories, told over one performance, that remember and celebrate people who changed the course of history. The personal is political in these soulful explorations of what it means to be part of one of the most dynamic communities in the world.

First, we reel to a dance hall in 'County Kilburn' in Moira Buffini's Dance Floor. In Dance Floor, the Guinness flows, the music never stops and for homesick Aoife, there's far more at stake than a dance.

In Roy Williams' bittersweet Life of Riley, Paulette is on a journey to connect with her estranged father Riley, a reggae musician once part of the influential Trojan Records scene, who can't seem to let go of the past.

And, Suhayla El-Bushra's Waking/Walking introduces us to Anjali, a wife, mother and newly arrived migrant following Idi Amin's expulsion of the Asian minority from Uganda, who is torn between not making a fuss and seizing her moment to take a stand as the Grunwick dispute unfolds.

Our review

NW Trilogy centres on the people who once resided right on the doorstep of Kilburn's Kiln Theatre where the piece makes its debut. It's a beautifully realised collection of plays where audiences are taken on a vivid tour through the vibrant history of north west London during the 1960s and 1970s. As part of a commission from the Brent Borough of Culture, the plays showcase the lived experiences of the immigrant communities at the time and how they wrestled with adversity. Dance Floor is the...
