•Passports To The Promised Land

2001

In association with Sheffield Theatres at Greenwich Theatre and National Tour

‘A seamless piece of contemporary black musical theatre that is both celebratory and reflective, populist and musically sophisticated.’
[The Guardian]

Passports To The Promised Land was an hilarious and serious tale of love and revenge on an epic scale. A musical like no other, in which calypso and reggae meet gospel and lovers rock; where hip-hop and opera sat with samples, swing beats and soul. Musical styles were plundered and fused to produce a magical tale of today and tomorrow.

Jordan is on a voyage of discovery. At nineteen years of age he leaves the Caribbean for England in search of his father. But rather than reaching England's shores, his journey leads him unexpectedly to a far more distant destination. At the gates of Heaven, Jordan watches his family as they build a new life and the spirit of the Caribbean moves us from the 1960s to today's streets of Notting Hill.
