The accusation of a black teenager sparks disturbance on the south London streets. While tensions rise, a couple from very different backgrounds navigate the minefield that lies between them and their families.

Picking apart an intricate tangle of cultures, religions and generations, The Westbridge showcases an array of voices from modern London with humour, style and bite.

The Westbridge premiered at the Bussey Building in Peckham, London, on 3 November 2011 as part of the Royal Court’s Theatre Local project, before transferring to the Jerwood Theatre Upstairs at the Royal Court Theatre.
