Book Shifters At Duke of York's Theatre, London

Do you believe in destiny? Shifters, “the perfect bittersweet rom-com” (Evening Standard) is transferring to the West End, following an incredible, sold-out run at Bush Theatre. This fierce new romance is “smouldering and soulful” (Time Out) and a must-see for anyone longing for a different kind of love story.

Written by Benedict Lombe (Lava, winner of the Susan Smith Blackburn Prize for Playwriting), directed by Evening Standard Theatre Award winner Lynette Linton (Blues for an Alabama Sky, August in England) and starring the tremendous (The Observer) Tosin Cole (BBC’s Doctor Who, Netflix's Supacell) and the irresistible (London Theatre) Heather Agyepong (School Girls; or, The African Mean Girls Play, Lyric Hammersmith). Shifters is a beautifully intoxicating and relatable reminder of the enduring power of memory and young love. A universal story, full of heart, it’slaugh out loud funny and tears-to-the-eyes moving (The Times).

‘Something is shifting between you – again. Something terrifying and comforting.’

Dre and Des. Young. Gifted. Black. He stayed. She left.

Years later, Des and Dre come crashing back into each other’s lives, carrying new secrets and old scars. With the clock counting down until Des has to leave again, memories of their teen years collide with their present and they’re forced to question if destiny has brought them back together for a reason.
