Urban Theatre Presents In His Hands

Ariyon Bakare and Janet Suzman in Dream of The Dog Urban Theatre Presents In His Hands

Matthew Xia directs the young cast of Urban Theatre in a Film Noir styled exploration of gun trafficking and the lives it affects.


"Instead of asking who is to blame for the increase in London gun crime, particularly amongst teenagers, we have chosen to look at how the 'gun' ends up in our cities and in the hands of young people."


Urban Theatre was established in 2004 to give a voice and platform to young theatre practitioners who through original and personal work would be able to express their views about their own social, physical and economic environment.


In His Hands' has been made possible by a grant from The National Lottery 'Awards for All' scheme and The Okai Collier Company Limited.
