We’re glad that The Fellowship has finally opened. Plagued by numerous Covid-related delays, and losing its lead actor Lucy Vandi a week before press night due to ill health, the play has had a rather tumultuous journey to the Hampstead Theatre stage but has finally arrived.

The latest offering from playwright Roy Williams – we caught his state-of-the-nation address Death of England at the National Theatre shortly before the pandemic hit – it considers a range of topical issues through the lens of the children of the Windrush generation.

Cherelle Skeete has stepped into the lead role at scarcely a week’s a notice and, if it wasn’t for the occasional appearance of a script on stage, you wouldn’t be able to guess – she’s a force to be reckoned with as middle-aged Dawn.
