The Kilburn Passion
Thu 3 Apr 2014 – Sat 5 Apr 2014
By Suhayla El-Bushra
Director: Emily Lim
Presented by Tricycle Young Company 19-25 Ensemble
‘I’ve seen you. Putting up the shutters like you’re the only real person here, everyone else just robots you have to avoid, like in some computer game.’
A bus, a food van, a salon, a clothes shop.
Preoccupied with the daily grind, the residents of Kilburn High Road are busy. Too busy, in fact, to notice each other. But when a stranger arrives, their worlds begin to collide in a way that no one saw coming.
