About Death of England: Delroy

Sitting in the pews at the funeral of Michael’s father is his childhood best friend, Delroy. Delroy’s girlfriend is Michael’s sister, Carly. Delroy is fiercely ambitious and upwardly mobile in his job as a bailiff, but his life suddenly spirals out of control as he rushes to the hospital where Carly is about to give birth.

Starring Paapa Essiedu (I May Destroy You; Hamlet; The Effect), Death of England: Delroy is the second part of the acclaimed Death of England trilogy, and premiered at the National Theatre in 2020. Praised at the time as “a blistering piece of stagecraft” (WhatsOnStage), this is an exciting chance to see it performed by one of the UK’s best theatre actors in the West End’s newest venue.

Experience the Death of England Trilogy

For the first time, theatre fans can see all three of Clint Dyer and Roy Williams’ Death of England plays performed alongside each other in an exhilarating West End season. Confronting race, class, national identity and personal relationships, these three plays - featuring interlinked characters and scenarios - promise a “uniquely brilliant” (The Evening Standard) live experience as audiences can choose to book for one, two or all three productions.

Dyer, who also directs, is known for his work on Get Up, Stand Up! The Bob Marley Musical and Othello at the National Theatre, while Williams is an Olivier Award-nominated playwright, known for Sucker Punch and Sing Yer Heart Out for the Lads.
