Former CASUALTY actress Martina Laird is appearing in theatre this Summer.
Martina will star in ‘Shebeen’ alongside Karl Collins at the Theatre Royal, Stratford East from 20th June – 7th July.
It’s a hot, humid summer in 1958. Tempers are flaring and Teddy Boys are on the march. Jamaican couple Pearl and George are helping Caribbean migrants to cut loose at their Shebeen – a forbidden party where drinks flow, music plays, food is plentiful, and carefree attitudes roam.
On a night fuelled by rum, calypso and dancing, the Shebeen is under threat from the police, and as tensions build everyone is forced to confront some uncomfortable truths.
