This captivating and sincere play comes to London’s Kiln Theatre for an extremely limited run.

As Shirley and Dwight bury their mother, they remember their upbringing in 1980s Chapeltown, Leeds differently. In the height of racial discrimination, police brutality and poverty, the struggle for survival ripped through their family.

Dwight was discovering what it meant to be a young black boy with autism in a world determined never to understand him. Shirley was desperately trying to forge her own independence away from unfair expectations at school and home.

Now as adults, they need to bring together the fractured pieces of their past to move forward together.


The Darkest Part of the Night stars Brianna Douglas as young Shirley, Andrew French as Calvin/Leroy, Lee Phillips as Dwight, and Nadia Williams as Shirley/Josephine. They are joined by James Clyde as Mr Campbell/Police Office/Prison Officer/Mourner and Hannah Morrish as Anna/Mourner.
