2009, 90 minutes
Two detectives, one black and one white, investigate the murder of a studious black teenager. Adapted by the playwright from his 2002 play.
When 16 year old, Kwame (Lanre Malaolu), is stabbed to death by a local gang, the lives, feelings and fears of the young perpetrators and the police officers investigating the crime are exposed in full. At a time when it has never been more important to understand why some of our youth would arm themselves and commit devastating acts of violence, Williams is unflinching in capturing the culture and circumstances that are wrecking young lives. Fallout was written in the aftermath of the Stephen Lawrence and Damilola Taylor cases.
