Nominated for an Olivier Award for Outstanding Achievement in an Affiliate Theatre.
Following its world premiere and sell-out runs at the Lyric
Hammersmith and Royal Exchange Theatre, Manchester, last year Mogadishu returns to mark the end of its UK tour.
Set in an inner-city school, the play follows the story of a well-intentioned white teacher, who finds herself the victim when
caught up in a school yard fight. While trying to protect a black
student from exclusion, the tables are turned as he convinces
his friends to spin a story of lies accusing her of racial assault.
Winner of the George Devine Award, Bruntwood Playwriting
Competition and nominated for Best New Play at the Theatre
Awards UK and Most Promising Playwright at the Evening
Standard Awards 2011.
