About: God's Property

It's 1982. London is restless. Gripped by spiraling unemployment and inner city riots. Ska beats dominate the airwaves and in a flat in Deptford, two mixed race brothers are re-united.

Sixteen year old, Onochie rules the family roost. His barely known older brother Chima returns home to find that Onochie is a skinhead who chooses to no longer be black.

Chima is not welcome in the area and only has a few hours to connect with his brother. But outside a hostile community has been alerted to his return. Chima has been blamed for the death of a white girl and the vitriolic community won't rest until it delivers its rough justice.

In this timely and compelling play, Onochie is forced to decide whether to stand with the community he has tried to belong to, or with the brother he barely knows.

Suitable for ages 16+

Written by Arinze Kene
Directed by Michael Buffong

Transfers to Soho Theatre on 26 February.
