Death of England
A family in mourning. A man in crisis. After the death of his dad, Michael is powerless and angry. In a state of heartbreak, he confronts the difficult truths about his father’s legacy and the country that shaped him. At the funeral, unannounced and unprepared, Michael decides it is time to speak.
Rafe Spall performs this fearless one-person play which asks explosive and enduring questions about identity, race and class in Britain. It is written by Roy Williams and Clint Dyer who becomes the first black British artist to have performed, written and directed a full-scale production at the National Theatre.
