About Tree

Idris Elba and Kwame Kwei-Armah’s electrifying new blend of drama, music and dance follows one man’s journey into the heart and soul of contemporary South Africa – with the audience at the centre of the action.

It’s just 12 hours from London to his parents’ homeland, but to Kaelo (Alfred Enoch), South Africa is another world. When a family tragedy finally forces him to visit for the first time, Kaelo must confront hidden histories and right the wrongs of the past.

Directed by Kwame Kwei-Armah, with music inspired by Elba’s album 'Mi Mandela', Tree is an exhilarating show about identity, family and belonging, seen through the eyes of one man on the toughest journey of his life.

The audience is placed, standing, at the heart of the action, with the performance unfolding around it.
