Off the Endz! By Bola Agbaje

Boy - Jacob Anderson
Sharon - Zawe Ashton
Boy - Tito Fagbenle
Jerome - Daniel Green
Keisha - Chi Kolo
Kojo - Nathaniel Martello-WHite
David - Ashley Walters

Directed by Dominic Cooke during the Royal Court Upstairs Rough Cuts season

Very sharp bit of writing, well produced (for a reading).

We follow the lives of Kojo and David. Both from the same estate but with a different take on life and what the future means to them. David is in and out of prison blaming anyone but himself. Kojo works it out and succeeds in forming a life with a job and a girlfriend that works with a bit of hard graft......until David messes it up.
