Howling Wind

A stunning dramatisation of the Windrush Story. Written by Noa Abraham and directed by Steve Macauley. Promoted by Reading Windrush Alliance

Howling Wind is a portrayal of the Windrush story, starting in the 1950s when British institutions began to actively recruit Black British subjects in the West Indies to come to help rebuild the “Mother Land” following the devastation caused by WW2. Mya and her siblings are left behind with relatives for several years.

Reconciliation is challenging for 14-year-old Mya, but she excels in school amid racism, discrimination and family challenges.

The play outlines both the struggles and the many successes and achievements of the Windrush generation and their descendants.

Written by Noa Abraham and produced by Steve Macauley, Howling Wind is a must see for the entire family.
