Friern Barnet School presents Wind/Rush Generation(s) by Mojisola Adebayo

This is a play about the British Isles, its past and its present.

Set in a senior common room, in a prominent university, a group of first year undergraduates are troubled, not by the weight of their workload, but by a ‘noisy’ ghost. So they do what any group self-respecting and intelligent university students would do in such a situation – they get out the Ouija Board to confront their spiritual irritant and lay them to rest – only to be confronted by the full weight of Britain’s colonial past – in all its gory glory.

As the planch on the Ouija Board skates from letter to letter at an ever-increasing breakneck speed, the students are catapulted through space and time, witnessing the injustices, incongruities and inhumanity of the past.

Fusing naturalism, with physical theatre, spoken-word, absurdism, poetry and direct address – this is event-theatre that whips along with the grace, pace and the hypnotic magnetism of a hurricane.

This event is part of the NT Connections Festival at artsdepot.
