Leah Harvey stars as the lead in Small Island at The National Theatre.

★★★★★ "One of the most important plays of the year. Superb production. Outstanding performances. Andrea Levy’s epic makes momentous theatre."- Guardian.

Andrea Levy’s epic, Orange Prize-winning novel bursts to new life on the Olivier stage. A company of 40 tells a story which journeys from Jamaica to Britain, through the Second World War to 1948 – the year the HMT Empire Windrush docked at Tilbury. Leah Harvey precisely captures Hortense’s stiff-backed pride in the face of prejudice. Playing until 20th August, book tickets here.
