‘See that’s the problem with this family innit, we never wanna talk real about Ife.’
In the wake of the sudden death of their eldest son, Ife, one family is forced to confront the traumas they’ve long tried to bury. As the sun beats down on their North London flat, and the head of the family arrives from Ethiopia for the funeral, tensions rise, cultures clash and past betrayals are unearthed.
A tense and captivating story of what it means to belong, and what happens when a family’s secrets shake its foundations. This explosive drama by Ethiopian-British writer Beru Tessema is a new Bush commission directed by Artistic Director, Lynette Linton.
The production runs from 29th April – 29th June 2022.
