A Kind of People Tickets

London Play
A Kind of People by Gurpreet Kaur Bhatti
“In this country, you go as far as they let you.” Friday night on the fringes of the city and someone’s having a party. It seems like a laugh, but not everyone’s having fun. Gary and Nicky have been together since school. Gary’s going for a promotion so he can get his family out of their council flat and give Nicky everything she deserves. Anjum and Mo are used to aiming for the best. And doing whatever it takes to get it. Gary’s sister Karen is more interested in having a life than fighting for any cause. Mark is just…always there. And Victoria, Victoria wants to dance with somebody… Gurpreet Kaur Bhatti‘s new play, set amidst a contemporary British community, asks how it’s possible to get on when the odds are stacked against you. “It’s a good place. Keep watching and one day it’ll be ours.” Gurpreet Kaur Bhatti‘s previous work at the Royal Court includes: Khandan. She has written extensively for stage, screen and radio. Her work includes Elephant, Behzti/Dishonour(Birmingham Rep), the latter won the Susan Smith Blackburn Prize; and the feature film Everywhere and Nowhere. “Bhatti writes excellently…she also creates complex characters.” The Guardian The Big Idea: Post-Show Talk | Tue 7 Jan Writer Gurpreet Kaur Bhatti in conversation with Royal Court Young Agitators. This event is free with a ticket to that evening’s performance.

  • Review Avatar Dec 15, 2019

    After a quiet start it became really absorbing. We both thoroughly enjoyed it and felt as if we had received good value. The acting was good and the simple set was clever. A little dark but makes you ponder.

    An honest reflection of an unfortunate reality

  • Review Avatar Dec 20, 2019

    Very thought provoking. The acting was excellent and intense. So many issues for this multicultural society to deal with. We ALL have a lot of self examination to do.

  • Review Avatar Jan 11, 2020

    I thoroughly enjoyed this. I left thinking I would watch again. The female and male actors were brilliant. certainly food for thought. well done too the writer and everyone who played a part putting it together. awesome.

  • Review Avatar Jan 13, 2020

    Very well written play. Very dynamic. You don't feel like it lasted 90mn. The actor are really really really good. The range of emotion they are able to make you feel is quite impressive. I do recommend it. The character and their demons are very relatable and not far fetched at all!

  • Review Avatar Jan 13, 2020

    Absolutely amazing show! From start to finish it was an emotional rollercoaster giving life to the realities of multicultural Britain. I'd highly recommend - amazing work by the writer Gurpreet Kaur Bhatti!

  • Review Avatar Jan 17, 2020

    Some dialogue unclear, hence not able to follow the plot.

  • Review Avatar Jan 18, 2020

    This play was incredible. Amazing actors and a plot that just blows you away because it touches on subtle things in our society that we never speak about. Very emotional! Bravo to the witer, director,set designer and cast!!

    This was an absolutely excellent play, powerfully performed, which gripped the audience wholeheartedly through highs of joy and laughter to lows of shock and despair. I would definitely watch again.
