1968. Midlands MP Enoch Powell has something to say. Something he feels needs to be said. Something that could divide Britain forever.
1992. Rose Cruickshank, a black Oxford academic, wants answers. Powell's 'Rivers of Blood' speech, with its controversial words about immigration, shattered her childhood and now she is driven to confront both the man who made the speech and her own troubled identity. Will a meeting with Enoch resolve the conflicts that are tearing her - and the country - apart?
Chris Hannan's powerful play, What Shadows, is a searing look at how a bitterly divided country moves forward in the wake of a crisis. It premiered at Birmingham Repertory Theatre in 2016, in a production directed by Roxana Silbert and starring Ian McDiarmid as Enoch Powell.
