Until 17th October 2009

Two families bound together by grief. One devastating secret set to tear them apart.

When two families living in East London reunite after a family tragedy their union exposes a wealth of secret motives, jealousy, insecurities and some very different reflections on a young girl’s short life. A mother’s loss turns into obsession, a father’s ambition turns into contradiction and a child’s innocence is forever lost.

High Life also deals directly with the complexity of dual heritage and explores the impact of dual cultures as a backdrop to how this tragedy is played out.

“There are plenty of social and religious issues that inform this play that are not widely discussed or even acknowledged openly within the African and wider immigrant communities which ought to be addressed both between and within generations on a more visible platform…”
