Zodwa Nyoni’s The Darkest Part of the Night

Shirley and Dwight are in the process of burying their mother. As they work through this they each remember their 1980s upbringing in Chapeltown, Leeds. However, they don’t remember it the same way. Dwight was struggling to learn what it meant to be a young black man with autism and Shirley was fighting desperately for her independence, struggling with breaking away from unrealistic expectations at home and school.

They grew up amidst rampant racial discrimination, police brutality and poverty. The fight to survive tore through their family. As adults, it is now up to them to piece back together their shattered past and try to moev forward together. 

This captivating and heartfelt family drama explores the complex, changing, and beautiful nature of what it truly means to care for one another.
