  • There is no theatre in Britainthat punches so consistently above

    its size and weight than the Tricycle inKilburn. It may be small, but big things

    happen here. It has pioneered a series oftribunal plays, ranging from the Stephen

    Lawrence enquiry to the events of BloodySunday, and earlier this year presented a day-long marathon of one-act dramas chronicling thehistory of Afghanistan from 1842 to the present

    war in Helmand. No theatre offers greater claritywhen it comes to exploring fault lines in Britishsociety. Now the theatres artistic director NicolasKent has embarked on another grand projet - threenew plays from three of our leading black dramatistsexploring contemporary life in London.
