Young Vic, London
Our Review 4 / 5

Directed by Kwame Kwei-Armah, Artistic Director of London’s Young Vic, with music inspired by Elba’s album Mi Mandela, Tree is an exhilarating show about identity, family and belonging, seen through the eyes of one man on the toughest journey of his life. 

It’s just 12 hours from London to his parents’ homeland, but to Kaleo (Alfred Enoch), South Africa is another world. A family tragedy finally forces him to visit for the first time – and as he takes his journey of healing, Kaleo must confront hidden histories and right the wrongs of the past. But first he must face the present: a shattered family, fighting to hold on to what they believe is theirs, in a nation haunted by the ghosts of its own turbulent past.

Our Review of Tree


If you’re hoping to arrive at the Young Vic early and have a leisurely perusal of the programme pre-show at Tree, think again. As I made my way down towards the stage, all I could see was the grinning artistic director Kwame Kwei-Armah throwing some shapes welcoming people to the space, as actors and audience cut up the dancefloor stage to bone-rattling bass.
