More about The Darkest Part Of The Night

As Shirley and Dwight bury their mother, they remember their upbringing in 1980s Chapeltown, Leeds differently. In the height of racial discrimination, police brutality and poverty, the struggle for survival ripped through their family.

Dwight was discovering what it meant to be a young black boy with autism in a world determined never to understand him. Shirley was desperately trying to forge her own independence away from unfair expectations at school and home.

Now as adults, they need to bring together the fractured pieces of their past to move forward together.

Nancy Medina directs Zodwa Nyoni’s gripping and heartfelt drama that explores the complexities and beauty of what it really means to care for one another.

View Seating Plan

Our building has a proud history, starting life in 1929 as a meeting hall for the Friendly Society of Foresters. The hall was converted to a theatre in 1980 by Shirley Barrie and Ken Chubb, who named it the Tricycle in honour of their touring theatre company, the Wakefield Tricycle Company. In 1984, Nicolas Kent became the artistic director of the Tricycle Theatre and for the next 28 years grew its reputation as a major political powerhouse.

Today, following our much-needed major architectural renovation, the building is future-proofed for the next generations of theatregoers and theatre-makers. Our capital development project has:

  • made our theatre accessible to everyone: in our front of house areas, in our auditorium and backstage
  • improved the theatrical experience with a flexible stage, individual comfortable seating and great sightlines throughout the auditorium
  • created improvements outside the auditorium, by building more toilets and opening a welcoming new café on Kilburn High Road
  • unearthed original features from the Foresters’ Hall and made them visible within the building

Everyone here has worked tirelessly to achieve this ambitious project. We are really proud that with these essential improvements we can ensure our longevity as a theatre of international reach and a space for the whole community, while celebrating our history and everything that has come before us.

This transformed Tricycle is renamed Kiln Theatre – a name that echoes Kilburn, the place where we live. It speaks of energy and creativity and inspires a sense of warmth. We are a local theatre with international influence, proudly located in Brent, the most culturally diverse borough in London.
