Welcome to the Caribbean. Where the sun is hot and the living is uneasy.

Meet three women. An unlikely trio. Different ages, backgrounds and attitudes. Each has a unique relationship with the island. A home. A regular holiday haunt. A first time visit. Through language that fizzes and sparks, we begin to discover that they share one surprising thing in common.

Trade was first performed in 2005 by the Royal Shakespeare Company. New Perspectives bring debbie tucker green's distinctive voice to a rural audience for the first time. Get set for an intoxicating mix of fresh rhythm and raucous humour as the women come to terms with the transactions that define who they are.

Contains strong language.



We are offering a 2 hour interactive workshop (3pm – 5pm) on the day of performance at or close to each venue, for community members to create and shape some of their own stories to share with the audience on the night. After the performance there will be an interval followed by the story sharing and a Q&A session with cast and New Perspectives company members.


‘Poetry laced with shards of broken glass…short, sharp and pungent theatre’ The Guardian

'Packs more into its single intense act than most plays twice its duration manage... shocking emotional violence... a riveting examination of the queasy relationship between two parts of our economically divided world. A small wonder' The Times
