TARA Arts in association with Arcadia Books present
Written and performed by Alex Wheatle
Directed by Jatinder Verma

The award winning author Alex Wheatle MBE was abandoned by his Jamaican born parents as a young boy and spent his childhood in a brutal children’s home. As a teenager he made a living hustling on the riot-torn streets of Brixton, but after a spell in prison he began to build a new life.

Alex’s novels include Brixton Rock and East of Acre Lane. His latest novel Brenton Brown is due to be released in the Spring of 2011.

The performance will be followed by a book signing. Books can be purchased in advance at
