Meet the 4 Walls Community Cast

Published Wednesday 6th Sep 2023
Derby Theatre truly embeds its ethos of a learning theatre and we have experienced first-hand how working in partnership can change lives. Say hello to some of our community cast, local artists and creatives to see how they have found their own journeys with 4 Walls.

A Derby Theatre Production as part of Derby CAN


Written by Rukus.

A high-energy multimedia experience with live music, performance, dance and large scale digital projection.
4 Walls, an exciting new play from local music producer and Hip Hop artist, Rukus, invites you into a world of community, discovering what our fundamental needs are, who informs them and how we navigate where we go.

A Caribbean woman is surprised to be caught up in a scandal, in her old age. A school kid suffers sleepless nights in fear of deportation, yet his dreams of a music career stay big. Then there’s what’s her face, you know, the young nomad, out of place soul plodding the lonely road and not to 4get Femi, the inner-city dreamer, ambitious and aspirational, a believer.

But as their journeys go on, something just seems wrong. Living in the same block of flats, each stranger is experiencing a deafening chorus of fear that crescendos and bursts into a Uni-verse, which is simply entitled: Find where you belong.

4 Walls will be performed by a professional company of actors who will be joined by a community cast of performers.

Following each performance of 4 Walls, the upper foyer at Derby Theatre will play host to an exciting and eclectic range of established and up-and-coming local artists and musicians who will entertain and inspire the audience post-show.
