National Youth Theatre: Pigeon English

In the shadows of concrete high rises, eleven year old Harri is walking on a tightrope towards manhood. Events quickly spiral out of his control and the world will never be the same again.

Stephen Kelman's 2011 Man Booker prize shortlisted novel is electrifyingly adapted for stage for its West End premiere by award-winning playwright Gbolahan Obisesan.

The NYT REP Company present this tender, funny and heart-breaking story inspired by one of the most powerful events in modern history.

Under the inspired direction of National Youth Theatre Associate Director Anna Niland, Pigeon English looks at the sometimes harsh reality of adulthood in modern day Britain.

PLEASE NOTE: Pigeon English contains strong language and the use of strobe lighting within the production.
