TRIGGER NOTICE: This production contains Flashing Lights and use of Haze.

Two teenagers; one ‘born ‘n’ bred’ Newham; the other a civil war refugee. They don’t know each other… yet. But in the night-time cityscape playground of train yards and tube depots, they escape their troubled and isolated lives spray painting London colourful.

Set in the early 2000s, Shadow Kingdoms tells the story of an unlikely partnership forged between two strangers, who discover a shared passion for train graffiti writing.

Featuring an electronic soundtrack and dynamic movement, Shadow Kingdoms by Berri George (BBC Hot Talent List and BBC Drama Room 2017), was nominated as runner-up in the 2017 Mercury Playwriting Award.
