Based on Andrea Levy's Orange Prize-winning novel and adapted for the stage by Helen Edmundson, Small Island tells the story of the Windrush generation, and the journey they made from Jamaica to Britain at the end of the Second World War.

The play follows three intricately connected and tangled stories. In the first one Hortense is yearning for a new life away from rural Jamaica, whilst Gilbert is dreaming about becoming a lawyer. Queenie, meanwhile, is just longing to escape her Lincolnshire roots.
