The new play by Roy Williams, winner of the Evening Standard's Most Promising Playwright Award, 2001

A boy is found dead. D.C. Joe Stephens must return to his old neighbourhood to investigate. Shanice was the last person to see him, and studiously avoids his enquiries into her boyfriend Emile's gang of friends. Meanwhile Shanice's best friend Ronnie saw something that she swears she will never tell. But when a ?30K reward is offered and Ibiza beckons, the girls and boys face the biggest test of street loyalty in their young lives. FALLOUT provides a terrifying insight into a council estate faced with a gang murder of a kind all too familiar in our inner cities.
Praise for Roy Williams' work: "Williams' writing snaps and crackles, his characters burst with life, emotion and contradiction" - Guardian; "Roy Williams shows himself to be a sassy, sophisticated diviner of the human heart" - Evening Standard
