England, race and football fans | Death of England by Roy Williams and Clint Dyer

A family in mourning. A man in crisis. Death of England by Roy Williams and Clint Dyer at the National Theatre: https://www.nationaltheatre.org.uk/sh... 31 Jan - 7 Mar 2020 Rafe Spall performs an extract about England, race and football fans, from Death of England, in rehearsals at the National Theatre. -- After the death of his dad, Michael is powerless and angry. In a state of heartbreak, he confronts the difficult truths about his father’s legacy and the country that shaped him. At the funeral, unannounced and unprepared, Michael decides it is time to speak. Rafe Spall (Hedda Gabler, Black Mirror) performs this fearless one-person play which asks explosive and enduring questions about identity, race and class in Britain. It is written for him by Roy Williams (Sucker Punch, Sing Yer Heart Out for the Lads) and Clint Dyer (The Happy Tragedy of Being Woke), who becomes the first black British artist to have performed, written and directed a full-scale production at the National Theatre. -- Subscribe: http://www.youtube.com/c/NationalThea...
