In 2000 Smith’s novel “White Teeth” was part of a publishing bidding war and it went on to win an array of awards, shooting the then young writer into the public eye.
The Story: Rosie Jones, the Iqbal twins, their parents, their grandparents, Mad Mary and an avalanche of other characters who make up the everyday chaos of Kilburn High Road come together in an extraordinary revelry of NW6. An epic comedy with music and dance, this theatrical rollercoaster takes us on a fast-paced journey through history, different cultures and chance encounters.
