IN KEEPING with The National Theatre’s mission to make world class theatre that’s entertaining, challenging, inspiring and most importantly ‘for everyone’, Clint Dyer presents ‘Death of England’ featuring Rafe Spall

After the death of his dad, Michael is powerless and angry. 

In a state of heartbreak, he confronts the difficult truths about this father’s legacy and the country that shaped him. At the funeral, unannounced and unprepared Michael decides it is time to speak.

Spall 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 and Clint Dyer, who becomes the first black British artist to have performed, written and directed a full-scale production at the National Theatre.

Previews in the Dorfman Theatre until March 7.
