Estate Walls
Estate Walls, Part of Omo London, Nigeria in British playwrighting festival
Three ghetto youts on de estate wall, whole day pass dey do na'ting at all, Dey fink dey bad cos dey fightin' 'n' brawlin', but one of dese mornin', one of dese mornin', one of dese mornin'..."

Set in an inferior London estate, told through rich, witty urban street slanguage, Estate Walls follows the story of Obi, a young writer who dreams of leaving his estate, but with bad boys Myles and Cain for best friends, there are bound to be setbacks.

As Myles and Cain plan another heist, Obi decides to opt out but his refusal to take part in their caper, and his growing love for a forbidden girl land him in a whole world of problems.

Inner City Theatre presents this gripping, poetic, thriller written by Artistic Director Arinze Kene, as their debut production directed by Ché Walker.
