"First thing I'm a need you to do is keep my secret. Can’t let nobody know I’m here and I mean nobody"

The play is set in Tiger Bay and celebrates the port town's community spirit starring brilliant Welsh actors such as Ifan Huw Dafydd, Gareth Kennerley and Bethan Mary-James.

In her illegal boarding house in Butetown, Cardiff, Gwyneth Mbanefo (Sarah Parish, Bancroft) toils tirelessly to keep afloat.

It’s a port town during the war; home to souls from every corner of the globe. When Nate (BIFA winner Samuel Adewunmi), an African American GI, escapes his barracks and discovers this new world without segregation, can he find safe harbour in Tiger Bay? And with danger on every corner, who can he trust?

TROUBLE IN BUTETOWN is a world premiere by the award-winning playwright Diana Nneka Atuona (Liberian Girl), directed by Tinuke Craig (Jitney, Old Vic).

Trouble in Butetown is a recipient of the Theatre Royal Haymarket Writers Award and the George Devine Award.
