Elba and Kwei-Armah’s electrifying new blend of drama, music and dance follows one man’s journey into the heart and soul of contemporary South Africa – with the audience at the centre of the action.

Dates and times: Mon 29 Jul - Sat 24 Aug: 19:30. Wed & Sat Matinees: 14:30.

It’s just 12 hours from London to his parents homeland, but to Kaleo (Alfred Enoch), South Africa is another world. When a family tragedy finally forces him to visit for the first time, Kaleo must confront hidden histories and right the wrongs of the past. But first he must face the present: a shattered family, fighting to hold on to what they believe is theirs, in a nation haunted by the ghosts of its own turbulent past.

Directed by Kwame Kwei-Armah, with music inspired by Elba’s album 'Mi Mandela', Tree is an exhilarating show about identity, family and belonging, seen through the eyes of one man on the toughest journey of his life.
