West End Transfer

Following a sold-out debut run at the Bush Theatre which earned rave reviews in the theatre press, Shifters by Benedict Lombe transfers to the West End from August - October! Directed by BAFTA nominated Lynette Linton and starring Heather Agyepong and Tosin Cole reprising their roles from the original production, don't miss out on tickets for this limited run!

As young lovers Dre and Des grew older, their paths went in different directions. Eight years after their split, though, they find themselves suddenly back in eachothers' lives. Some dreams have been realised, some new wounds have been opened, everything has changed... and yet, nothing has at all. A heartwarming tale of the endurance of teen love, its creator Benedict Lombo becomes only the third black British woman to have a play in the West End.
