A black Caribbean diplomat. A white far-right party leader. A white government official. Based on the 2018 real-world controversy that shook Britain, they each explain the “Windrush Scandal” from wildly opposing perspectives.

Half a million people migrated to Britain from the Caribbean between 1948 and 1973. In 2018 new immigration laws were passed and thousands of this so-called Windrush generation were deprived of their liberty, wrongfully deported, dismissed from their jobs, lost their homes and denied services such as healthcare after decades of being citizens of the UK.

In a powerful, stripped-down performance, Rodreguez King-Dorset plays all three characters, switching nimbly between each one. Windrush Secret doesn’t shy away from the legacy of empire, imperialism or the outcry of broken promises a nation makes to its people. The result is a provocative unmasking of a horrific calamity in history that forced a nation to look in the mirror and reconsider its path.

Produced by A&R Film Media as part of 59E59's Brits Off Broadway season.
