London born author Zadie Smith’s classic novel White Teeth gets its first stage adaptation.
You’re in Kilburn. Melting pot where nothing’s actually melted. It’s all just kinda stuck together at the bottom in a gooey mess.
Rosie Jones, the Iqbal twins, their parents, their grandparents, Mad Mary and an avalanche of other characters who make up the everyday chaos of Kilburn High Road come together in an extraordinary revelry of NW6.
An epic comedy with music and dance, this theatrical rollercoaster takes us on a fast-paced journey through history, different cultures, and chance encounters.
Zadie Smith’s breakthrough novel is adapted for stage by acclaimed playwright Stephen Sharkey and directed by Artistic Director Indhu Rubasingham in a major world premiere.
The cast includes Ayesha Antoine (Irie Jones), Michele Austin (Mad Mary), Ayesha Dharker (Alsana Iqbal), Tony Jayawardena (Samad Iqbal), Karl Queensborough (Anthony /Denise/Josh Chalfen), Sid Sagar (Magid Iqbal), Amanda Wilkin (Rosie Jones), Assad Zaman (Millat Iqbal), and actor-musicians Nenda Neurer (also Clara Jones).
White Teeth opens at Kiln Theatre on 5 November, with previews from 26 October, and runs until 22 December.
