#WhoisBrian

Another young black man dies in police custody. Apparently no one is to blame. In 2017 how can this be so?

Custody, created by Urbain Wolf (Art Machine) and written by Tom Wainwright (Banksy: The Room in the Elephant) is a contemporary fictional narrative about the moment another young black man’s life is taken from him whilst in custody. The play follows Brian’s bereaved family’s struggle for justice and resolution and asks, who will protect us for the protectors of society?

Directed by Gbemi Ikumelo, Custody tackles a vital subject, in a vivid, timely and authentic way. Black deaths in police custody are often assumed to be an American issue. Custody reminds us that they are not.

Inspired by Migrant Media’s banned cult documentary films Injustice and Who Polices the Police?, Custody draws on the real life experiences of families who have suffered from police injustice and from police stop and searches experienced by creator Urbain Wolf himself.
