The Windrush Warriors is a multi-ethnic play set in a community centre is about to embark on a 25-date tour of the UK starting in May.

Written by and starring black actor Nicola Gardner, who has starred in ITV soap Coronation Street, The Windrush Warriors is a multi-ethnic Windrush-inspired comedy drama.

Based around the shocking events of the Windrush scandal, the story follows four older generation African-Caribbean friends as they deal with personal trauma, striking a balance between comedy and sobering drama.

The show builds on the success of Gardner’s last major touring production The Community Centre, which successfully toured between 2016 and 2021.

Gardner said: “The Windrush Warriors presents a hilarious and sometimes poignant story of four brave African-Caribbean pensioners who imagined a peaceful later life and are now dealing with an unexpected challenge – the infamous Windrush scandal.

“The show exposes the unfair predicament of people who having lived and worked in the UK for decades, are now heartlessly being shown that they are undesirable.”

As well as appearing in ITV drama Coronation Street, Emmerdale, The Royal and Brookside, Gardner has also had roles in comedy plays for BBC Radio 4, playing the lead in Whoopi Goldberg’s Country Life by Shelagh Delaney and as Biyot Abdulle in Number 10 with the late Sir Anthony Sher.
