CORONAVIRUS: currently, all theatres and related venues are closed. Shows are either being cancelled, postponed or rescheduled and we are trying to keep up with all the changes. There are currently few changes after May 2020 and many shows that were due for April have been pushed back towards the end of Autumn. Pantomimes are looking like a safe bet at the moment ;-)


Leave Taking archiveA single mother travelled to England determined to make a good life for her family. Now Enid and her two daughters search for a way to feel rooted in a land where they're invisible. With one daughter prepping for university happy to lead "a quiet life" and the other doing anything but, what's a mother to do except call upon the local 'obeah' woman for some traditional Caribbean soul healing. Family secrets are soon revealed and tragedy rekindles Enid's longing for home. Leave Taking is a beautifully observed, moving account of a second generation immigrant family navigating the familial conflicts between generations and cultures. The play was first produced at the Liverpool Playhouse in 1987.
Performers Seraphina Beh (Del), Nicholle Cherie (Viv), Sarah Niles (Enid), Adjoa Andoh (obeah Mai), Wil Johnson (Uncle Brod).
Author Winsome Pinnock. Producer Bush Theatre. Director Madani Younis. Director Omar Elerian (associated director). Lighting Rajiv Pattani. Design Rosanna Vize.
