As well as a coming-of-age story, this is an account of social displacement by gentrification...It’s still rare to see a play about young, black, working-class youths on our stages: rarer still to see one in which they are celebrated like this.
A promising debut about football, friendship and gentrification...While the writing doesn’t always dig deep, the piece gathers momentum thanks to Daniel Bailey’s crisp direction and the strong performances.
To the background sound of construction work, and the foregrounding of dance music, this excellent piece of new writing is effortlessly and energetically entertaining.
Tyrell Williams has hardly come from nowhere, he is a graduate of the BAFTA Elevate scheme, but he's a rising talent of the first rank. Theatre needs voices like his...
Actors Kedar Williams-Stirling, Emeka Sesay and Francis Lovehall. Writer Tyrell Williams. All names to remember, who have created this fierce, affectionate, effortlessly funny play.
The play is a triumphant take on flux and football in a fast-changing south London neighbourhood...Under the direction of the Bush Theatre’s associate artistic director Daniel Bailey, there’s barely a moment of silence, with laugh-out-loud dialogue overlapping as each boy fights to have the last say.
It’s difficult to believe that this is Tyrell Williams’ debut. It’s intelligent, nuanced and the dialogue is tight...It’s a next-level coming-of-age story.
