From the writer who gave Caribbeans a real voice in Britain.

Sweet Talk 
A witty, energetic and finally moving account of a marriage in crisis.
comedy set in a tailor's shop, inspired by a real visit to a small room off Carnaby Street where two black tailors had set up shop with just two sewing machines and an ironing board. 

In the Mood 
Focuses on two Caribbean Second World War veterans, whose nostalgic Remembrance Sunday lunch is disrupted by a visit from a frivolous and irritating friend in search of a loan and as many free drinks as he can get his hands on. 

El Dorado 
Turns attention to a mixed-race, middle class family interred in their formerly grand but now dilapidated house. A grandson returns home to lay some ghosts to bed, and gains an alarming insight into the truths of home life.
