Tara Arts in association with Arcadia Books presents Uprising
Directed by Jatinder Verma

Marking the 30th anniversary of the Brixton riots, award winning author Alex Wheatle MBE presents his moving autobiographical story of how he became a writer.

Alex takes audiences on a journey through Britain in the 1980s: from the brutality of children’s homes to life on the ‘Frontline’ in riot-torn Brixton and sharing a prison cell with a fierce Rasta-man. A journey punctuated by the muscular singing of lyrics that made Alex the famous ‘Yardman Irie’ of the Brixton club scene.

Inspired by his best-selling novel, Brixton Rock and East of Acre Lane.

Followed by a Q&A and book signing. The performance contains some strong language.

Info: 7.30pm, The Albany. Douglas Way. Deptford. London SE8 4AG | Box Office 020 8692 4446 | www.thealbany.org.uk
