Michael Balogun plays Delroy with 'firecracker energy’ (★★★★ Evening Standard) in this new work by Clint Dyer and Roy Williams, which explores a Black working class man searching for truth and confronting his relationship with Great Britain.


Following national Coronovirus measures, Death of England: Delroy was forced to close mid-way through its run.  Filmed on its opening (and closing) night, the play will now be streamed for free on YouTube at 7pm Friday 27 November, then available on demand for 24hours.

Death of England: Delroy will return for live performances in the Olivier theatre during Spring 2021, featuring Michael Balogun as Delroy.  Tickets will go on sale in the new year.

Death of England: Delroy takes inspiration from the short film Dim Sum, written by Clint Dyer, produced by Headlong and the Guardian.

PLEASE NOTE: The play contains flashing lights, adult themes and strong language, some of which is racially offensive.

With your support, we can continue telling stories that matter.

Following the introduction of new national Coronavirus restrictions, the recovery of theatres and cultural organisations has once again been halted.
