Forthcoming Event: DADA

You are invited to a reading of a new two-act play

DADA

by Troy Andrew Fairclough

on Thursday 11th April at 6.30pm

at the New Culture Forum, 55 Tufton Street, London SW1P 3QL

Dada has summoned home his two sons Justin and Kevin to tell them he's dying. He now wants them to move back home so they can care for him, in the same way he cared for them for over ten years. But Justin and Kevin are reluctant to give up their new lives even though Dad threatens to cut them out of his will. Before the night ends and the start of the new millennium, Dada dies...but was it murder?

Dada is a contemporary slice of gay life from an original perspective which asks the question: would you give up everything for someone you love?

Troy Andrew Fairclough's first professional play ‘You Don’t Kiss’ won the Newham ‘Writing Out Award’ and was performed at Stratford Circus Theatre. It was performed again in April 2003 at the Ovalhouse Theatre, followed by a 10-date national tour. After a year-long writing attachment with the Nottingham Playhouse in 2007 he compiled a research project for Talawa Theatre Company (the UK’s leading Black theatre company) to evaluate their provision for young people and their current support for the ‘continuing professional development’ for Black, Asian, Minority Ethnic practitioners in theatre.

His most recent work ‘I Cover the Waterfront-The Spirit of Billie Holiday’ was showcased at ‘Richmix’ in London, as part of ‘Black History Month’ in October 2009 and again in 2010. His last play, ‘Justin Fashanu in Extra Time’ was performed in July 2010 (during the World Cup). Troy has since set up his own company, Lotus Productions.

NCF Event Tonight

You are invited to hear

author, journalist and Daily Telegraph blogger

Ed West

talking about his controversial new book

The Diversity Illusion: What We Got Wrong About Immigration And How To Set It Right

Tonight, 27th February 6.30pm at 55 Tufton Street, London SW1P 3QL

RSVP to prwhittle@btinternet.com 

Opinion polls over the past decade have continued to register huge public disquiet over the levels of immigration into Britain. Yet the belief, firmly held amongst the political establishment, that diversity is unarguably a good thing has made sensible debate on immigration impossible.

Concerned that the topic is being dominated by the Far Right, Ed West is writing here the first narrative intended to reflect the legitimate concerns of the population at large.

He debunks the myth the Britain has been a diverse nation since the Romans. He shows that open door policies, born out of a desire to do the right thing after WWII, have had unintended consequences.

He argues that by dispelling this delusion, and deconstructing the multiculturalism industry that has grown up around it in the last decade, it will be possible to have an open debate on Britain's future.
