FAITH Drama Productions(FDP) and Art Machine are working collaboratively to produce a brand new play- CUSTODY which is set to rehearse in London from April 2019 followed by a 3-week UK tour and finally ending in London’s Ovalhouse Theatre for 3-weeks.

CUSTODY is written by Tom Wainwright, Directed by Gbemisola Ikumelo (FDP) and created by Urbain Hayo (Art Machine) and examines how a Black British family survives after their Son, Lover and Brother dies under suspicious circumstances in police custody. This had a successful sell-out run at Ovalhouse in 2017 and we are back to take it out on tour and culminating in a further 3-week run London
