About Death of England: Delroy

@sohoplace Theatre, London
23 July 2024 - 28 September 2024

Death of England: Delroy comes to @sohoplace this Summer.

Starring Paapa Essiedu (I May Destroy You, Gangs of London, The Capture, Macbeth), Death of England: Delroy is the searing story of a Black working class man searching for truth and confronting his relationship with Britain.

Following an acclaimed run at the National Theatre, Death of England: Delroy will be staged alongside Death of England: Michael and Death of England: Closing Time for the very first time in this strictly limited landmark season.

These three interconnected, state of the nation plays are, by turns, exhilarating, profoundly moving, funny but furious, and deeply theatrical. Watch one as a standalone experience or discover the connections between two or three of the plays.

Death of England: Delroy runs from 23 July to 28 September 2024 at @sohoplace theatre in London.

Olivier Award winning actor Giles Terera has withdrawn from the National Theatre’s upcoming production of Death of England: Delroy following emergency surgery. The National Theatre stressed the Terera’s medical issue was not covid related, but that he would need six-weeks to recuperate. https://twitter.com/GilesTerera/status/1313121079293026305?s=20 centre Giles Terera (Aaron Burr) with West End Cast of Hamilton - Photo credit Matthew Murphy An actor, musician and film maker, Terera is best known for originating the role of Aaron Burr in the West End production of Hamilton. His many theatre credits include performances at the National Theatre and in the West End in such classics, as Hamlet, The Tempest, The Merchant of Venice, Troilus and Cressida, as well as more modern dramas Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom and musicals Avenue Q, The Rat Pack and The Book of Mormon. He most recently appeared in the West End revival of Rosmersholm alongside Hayley Atwell and Tom Burke.

Written by Clint Dyer and Roy Williams, Death of England: Delroy explores a Black working-class man “searching for truth and confronting his relationship with Great Britain”. The play is a standalone piece but is written in direct response to their previous play Death of England. The play is the first show to be performed at the National Theatre since theatres across the UK closed on 16 March. Death of England: Delroy begins performances on 21 October 2020 and runs until 28 November 2020. Giles Terera in rehearsal for The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui at the Donmar Warehouse.
