East meets West across the education divide when four London teenagers compete for a prestigious scholarship. As they venture across the capital into unfamiliar territories, friendships are tested, aspirations are challenged and each is forced to decide what matters most. Will the best candidate win or will their postcodes keep them in their place?
This vibrant, timely and touching new work, by award-winning playwright Ade Solanke, takes the pulse on coming-of-age in an increasingly divided city.
Ade Solanke's previous play, Pandora's Box, premiered at Arcola in 2012 and returned as part of a national tour in 2014. It was nominated for Best New Play in the OffWestEnd Theatre Awards and for the 2014 Nigeria Prize for Literature.
Written and directed by: Ade Solanke
Producer: Hannah Tookey
Casting Director: Caley Powell
Assistant Director: Maa Yarkor-Addo
Set and Costume Designer: Anna Lewis

Join our exciting, FREE and inclusive workshops, offered with our new play, East End Boys, West End Girls.
You'll create your own work and learn new games and techniques, exploring the themes of the play using drama, writing, music and movement.
We'll look at topics such as:
Friendship/Loneliness when at school
Societal pressures / personal ambitions
Similarities / differences within class, race, postcodes.
We'll devise short performances to be shared with an audience of family and friends in the theatre space on the last day.
