In association with the Barbados & Friends Association (Reading) & Reading School.

In 1965, a 14 year old Gordon Greenidge from St Peter, Barbados landed in a stark cold town called Reading. He went on to become one of the most successful cricketers in history, and was an integral part of the all-conquering West Indies side from 1974-91. 

'Being Gordon Greenidge' charts Gordon's rise to international fame from humble beginnings in 60's Reading, celebrating the huge impact his West Indian cricket team had on the Caribbean community. 

A brand new theatre show from the makers of ‘Jackson’s Corner’, ‘Kaspar’ and ‘The Final Whistle’, featuring archive footage and exclusive interviews with elders from Reading’s Bajan community.

Unfortunately, due to the nature of the location, the show is not accessible to wheelchair users.

Written & Directed by Benedict Sandiford
Performed by Christopher Tajah & Chris Udoh

Produced by South Street & the University of Reading
Supported with public funding through Arts Council England
