Curve Young Company Present

The Accordion Shop



Performed by Curve Young Company, The Accordion Shop by Olivier Award nominated writer Cush Jumbo, is a response to the London riots of 2011.

Mister Ellody has quietly kept his accordion shop going on his local high street for generations.

One day, he steps out of his door and witnesses an extraordinary incident: hundreds of young people are surging onto the street, and they’ve all received the same text message on their phones which simply says “RIOT. THE ROAD. 7pm TONIGHT.”

The play forms part of the National Theatre’s Connections programme for young people and will also be performed at the Warwick Arts Centre.

Running Time: 30 mins
