Death of England: Delroy
London, 2020. Delroy is arrested on his way to the hospital.
Filled with anger and grief, he recalls the moments and relationships that gave him hope before his life was irrevocably changed.
Written in response to their play Death of England, Michael Balogun plays Delroy in this new standalone work by Clint Dyer and Roy Williams, which explores a Black working class man searching for truth and confronting his relationship with Great Britain.
'A punkish state-of-the-nation address – truly a play for today.'
Guardian on Death of England
Death of England: Delroy takes inspiration from the short film Dim Sum, written by Clint Dyer, produced by Headlong and the Guardian.
PLEASE NOTE: The play contains flashing lights, adult themes and strong language, some of which is racially offensive.
