National Theatre Live
SMALL ISLAND
Adapted by Helen Edmundson
Based on the novel by Andrea Levy


Andrea Levy’s Orange Prize-winning novel Small Island comes to life in an epic new theatre adaptation. Captured live on stage in London as part of National Theatre Live’s 10th Birthday, experience the play on Riverside’s big screen.

Small Island embarks on a journey from Jamaica to Britain, through the Second World War to 1948 – the year the HMT Empire Windrush docked at Tilbury, England.

The play follows three intricately connected stories. Hortense yearns for a new life away from rural Jamaica, Gilbert dreams of becoming a lawyer, and Queenie longs to escape her Lincolnshire roots. Hope and humanity meet stubborn reality as the play traces the tangled history of Jamaica and the UK.

A company of 40 actors take to the stage of the National Theatre in London in this timely and moving story.
