About Death of England: Delroy

Paapa Essiedu (Gangs of London, The Lazarus Project) stars in the one-man show, Death of England: Delroy, the second in the Death of England play trilogy. Book Death of England: Delroy tickets on London Theatre.

For the first time ever, audiences can watch all three Death of England plays in a single season in the West End. Death of England: Delroy can be watched as a stand-alone show or in conjunction with the other two plays in the trilogy.

Death of England: Delroy in London is a play by Clint Dyer and Roy Williams. The play was inspired by Clint Dyer's 10-minute film, Dim Sum, which Headlong and the Guardian commissioned. The film tells the story of a black British bailiff.

The play expands on the film and tells the story of Delroy, a friend of Michael Fletcher (the character from Death of England: Michael, the first play in the trilogy). Delroy, a former bailiff, spends his unemployed days drinking alcohol alone. When his girlfriend goes into labour on the same day he is arrested, he is forced to examine racial profiling and his inability to remain apolitical.

Death of England: Delroy is a play that first began previews on 21 October 2020. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, social distancing measures were in place. However, even with those measures, the play that was supposed to run through 28 November 2020 closed on 4 November 2020, the production's opening night, due to COVID lockdown measures.

Even though the play's first run was cut short, the play's story, acting, and creative team were met with critical acclaim. As the Guardian's 4-star review said, "Sadeysa Greenaway-Bailey and Ultz's stage design was a highlight of that show and it is again: simple yet sensational with a few mischievous surprises."
