What Shadows

“I was a storm. I was also a man entirely alone in a storm. There were forces beyond my control and I was one of them."

Enoch Powell's Rivers of Blood speech was the most polarising political speech of the last 50 years.

Oxford academic and daughter of a Caribbean immigrant, Rose Cruickshank wants answers. Enoch's controversial words about immigration shattered her childhood. Rose cannot find inner peace until she understands what led him to make the speech that defined a generation. Will a meeting with the man himself give her the answers she desperately craves?

Roxana Silbert (Artistic Director, Birmingham Repertory Theatre), directs Ian McDiarmid (The Star Wars films, Merchant of Venice, Life of Galileo) as one of the most provocative figures in recent history.

★★★★ “Ian McDiarmid gives a standout performance as Powell” - The Times

★★★★ “The most provocative theatrical debate of the decade- The Telegraph

★★★★ “Compelling” - Financial Times
