The Lonely Londoners Tickets

Based on Sam Selvon’s groundbreaking novel, the critically acclaimed production The Lonely Londoners is set to return to the stage at the Kiln Theatre for a limited run. This thought-provoking and captivating play delves into themes of identity, belonging, and illusion as it portrays post-World War II London, with a focus on the post-Windrush community. Don't miss the chance to see this impactful production, which is as relevant today as it was when it was first written.

About The Lonely Londoners

The play is set in 1950s London and follows Henry ‘Sir Galahead’ Oliver. He is ready to start a new life in London, carrying only his pyjamas and a toothbrush. When he bursts through Moses Aloetta’s door, he finds Moses and his friends already disenchanted with city life. Will the London fog dampen Galahad’s dreams, or will these Lonely Londoners make a home in a city that sees them as a threat?
