Duke Of York's Theatre, London, WC2N 4BG
  • Do you believe in destiny? Get ready to fall for this “tender, cosmic and cleverly unpredictable love story that will leave you wishing for a sequel” (The Stage), SHIFTERS, at the Duke of York's Theatre, following an incredible, sold-out run at Bush Theatre.

    Written by Benedict Lombe (Lava, winner of the Susan Smith Blackburn Prize for Playwriting), directed by Evening Standard Theatre Award-winner Lynette Linton (Blues for an Alabama Sky, August in England) and starring the “irresistible” (London Theatre) Heather Agyepong (School Girls; or, The African Mean Girls Play, Lyric Hammersmith) and the “tremendous” (The Observer) Tosin Cole (Supacell, BBC’s Doctor Who).

    SHIFTERS is a beautifully intoxicating and relatable reminder of the enduring power of memory and young love. A universal story, full of heart, this love story is “easy itself to fall in love with (The Times).

    Dre and Des. Young. Gifted. Black. He stayed. She left.

    Years later, Des and Dre come crashing back into each other’s lives, carrying new secrets and old scars. With the clock counting down until Des has to leave again, memories of their teen years collide with their present and they’re forced to question if destiny has brought them back together for a reason.
