Male cast:

Based on Kester Aspden's award-winning book that charts the life of a man hounded to death by racist police, Oladipo Agboluaje's play brings David Oluwale back to Leeds to tell his story, face to face with the Scotland Yard Detective charged with investigating the case. From the prayers of his Maa'mi in Lagos and the glitter of the Mecca Dance Hall to the vagrant shelters of a city trying to recreate itself, this is a story of one man searching for justice and another who just wanted to find home.
