‘Ian McDiarmid gives a standout performance as Powell’
Enoch Powell‘s Rivers of Blood speech was the most polarising political speech of the last 50 years.
Oxford academic and daughter of a Caribbean immigrant, Rose Cruickshank wants answers. Enoch’s controversial words about immigration shattered her childhood. Rose cannot find inner peace until she understands what led him to make the speech that defined a generation. Will a meeting with the man himself give her the answers she desperately craves?
Olivier and Tony Award-winning actor Ian McDiarmid(The Star Wars films, Merchant of Venice, Life of Galileo) brings one of Britain’s most infamous politicians to life in a searing performance that has been hailed by critics.
At Park Theatre (N4) from 27 September to 28 October.
