It’s 2011 and 1958: London is rioting. Candice is ordered by her gang-leading boyfriend to lure Clint into a honeytrap. Haunted by her grandfather’s mistakes, she stands at a crossroads. Will she do as she’s told, or will she learn to be true to herself before history repeats itself? Commissioned and developed by Theatre Centre, Advice for the Young at Heart examines the unrest of summer 2011 against the backdrop of the 1958 race riots in Notting Hill, exploring themes of race, family and misguided loyalty.
