All of Us

a new play by Francesca Martinez

From 18 March to 16 May
Running Time: tbc

All of Us

A new play about what defines us.

Jess has a job she loves, great friends and a sharp sense of humour. So, when the life she has worked hard to build is threatened, she decides to take a stand.

This powerful and timely drama explores life, love and the struggle to survive for those who don’t fit in during a time of austerity.

Writer and comedian Francesca Martinez leads an ensemble cast in her debut play, directed by Ian Rickson (Translations).

There is a range of accessible performances available for All of Us, including captioned, audio-described, relaxed and sensory-adapted performances. For more information about accessible performances for All of Us, see below.

Please note: This production contains moments and themes that some people may find distressing; for more information, please contact us via our help centre.
