Amalgamation of truth, Likeable characters, Huge style, Quick wit/also sad, The empire windrush

See it if for an inside look at working-class London in the 1950s. The Empire Windrush puts a voice to people we rarely hear about. Amazing cast!

Don't see it if Recent British history isn’t your choice of theatre.
