Dylan Duffus, Orhan Whyte, Lady Leshurr, Yohance Watson / Fiction / English

With humour, sensitivity and confidence, Penny Woolcock’s hip-hop musical depicts the lives of gang members and their families in Birmingham. The cast of nonprofessionals is led by Dylan Duffus as Flash, a drug dealer who has 24 hours to come up with the £100,000 missing from the amount his jailed boss gave him for safekeeping. Irrepressibly soulful, 1 Day is grounded in a deep feeling for the survival of community in the midst of criminality. The screening will be followed by a panel discussion about the deadly culture of gang, gun, knife and criminality which is endemic in all our inner cities.
