Small Island Hops from the Page to the Stage During This Riveting Performance

Andrea Levy’s Orange Prize-winning novel, Small Island, comes to life in an epic new theatre adaptation. Experience the play in cinemas, filmed live on stage as part of National Theatre Live’s 10th birthday, at the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth!

Adapted for the stage by Helen Edmundson, Small Island follows three intricately connected stories. 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 U.K.

At the National, we make world-class theatre that is entertaining, challenging and inspiring. And we make it for everyone. Small Island runs for approximately 3 hours and 10 minutes. A company of 40 actors takes to the stage of the National Theatre in London in this timely and moving story.
