Supporting Wall presents the professional world premiere of 

by Philip Ridley

London & Tour, March - April 2010

An abandoned home. A lost brother. An East End tower block. A secret love story. Families and friendships are splintered by the politics of race, sexuality and money as a new generation encounters a world torn apart by the adults.

Supporting Wall presents a compelling, personal new work by Time Out and Evening Standard Award-winner Philip Ridley. Directed by David Mercatali, 'clearly one to watch' (Time Out).

‘Ridley is a visionary’ – Rolling Stone
'Ridley is the master of modern myth' - Guardian
