Theatre - Statement of Regret
Kwaku Mackenzie, founder of a Black policy think tank, hits the bottle after his father’s death. As media interest in the once dynamic Institute fades, his team grows fractious and then, disastrously, he favours a young Oxford scholar over his own devastated son. When, in a vain attempt to regain influence, he publicly champions division within the Black community, the consequences are shattering.

I applaud the Kwei-Armah's courage to expose the dialogues that have been going on internally among Black circles for a number of years. It would have been easier to play around at the superficial level of the debates, but this play went deep, very deep.
