August in England

Out of Stock. Delivery time unknown.


Lenny Henry's playwriting debut is a poignant, hilarious portrait of a life affected by the terrible injustice of the Windrush Scandal.

Yu see me? I was eight years old when I come
to H'Inglan' - I travel on my mother's passport

August Henderson, fifty-two years in England, a proud West Bromwich Albion fan, part-owner of a fruit and veg emporium, and a devoted dad. He's got the gift of the gab, exaggerates his musical talents, has no head for paperwork and is about to marry the woman he loves. And then the Home Office threatens him with deportation. August won't go quietly.

August in England opened at the Bush Theatre, London, in April 2023.

Nominated for The Stage Debut Award for Best Writer.
