National Theatre at Home: Small Island. adapted by Helen Edmundson based on the novel by Andrea Levy. ___ This epic and much-loved stage production of Andrea Levy’s Orange Prize-winning was filmed live on stage during its sold-out run in 2019. Small Island embarks on a journey from Jamaica to Britain, through the Second World War to 1948 – the year the HMT Empire Windrush docked at Tilbury. The play follows three intricately connected stories: Hortense yearns for a new life away from rural Jamaica, Gilbert dreams of becoming a lawyer, and Queenie longs to escape her Lincolnshire roots. Hope and humanity meet stubborn reality as the play traces the tangled history between Jamaica and the UK. A company of 40 actors were filmed live on the Olivier Theatre stage in this timely and moving story.
