    Protests and riots are erupting outside.

    A recent incident in police custody has stunned the nation.  

    16 year-old Luther, his father Malcolm and his grandfather Sidney are thrown together for the night, taking refuge at the family’s Caribbean restaurant.

    As the three men navigate the chaos on their doorstep, their different feelings come to the surface – on racism, masculinity, sexuality, parenting and love. Secrets emerge from deep within their family, and they start to see one another – and themselves – in a new light.

    Revealed hurtles from devastating and shocking to hilarious and heart-warming. It celebrates the courage in connecting with those we find hardest to love. 

    Written by renowned actor and emerging playwright Daniel J Carver (RSC), and directed by Tobacco Factory Theatres’ Associate Director Jay Zorenti-Nakhid.
