a Tiata Fahodzi and Almeida Theatre co-production


production information

Adrian is a triage nurse, British of Zimbabwean descent, working in a London NHS hospital, alongside his long-term English girlfriend, Jessica.

He finds himself suddenly drawn into a drama of ethics and loyalty when he encounters an African baby whom he suspects has been brought into the country illegally.

Following last year’s sell-out performances at the Almeida Theatre’s 2008 Summer Festival, Tiata Fahodzi will return to present The Golden Hour, a new play by their award-winning commissioned writer Michael Bhim. Directed by Femi Elufowoju Jr, The Golden Hour will be rehearsed and produced over three days.   

Michael Bhim is an award-winning playwright whose work has been seen at the Royal Court, Soho Theatre, the Tricycle Theatre and Paines Plough. Pure Gold was produced at the Soho Theatre in 2008 and he is currently writing a radio play for the BBC.

Tiata Fahodzi, led by Artistic Director Femi Elufowoju Jr, are the UK’s leading company producing new work that explores the richness and heritage of theatre sourced from people living within British African communities.   Their recent productions include Joe Guy by Roy Williams at the Soho Theatre (2007).
