Running Time: 190mins
A cast of 40 vividly brings to life Andrea Levy’s Orange Prize-winning novel under the direction of Rufus Norris, which was recorded live on the stage of the National Theatre in London. Helen Edmundson’s adaptation remains faithful to the source text and stitches together three interconnected stories of strife and self-sacrifice through the Second World War to 1948, the year that Tilbury Docks welcomed the arrival of the HMT Empire Windrush.
