Red Pitch
By Tyrell Williams

Red Pitch explores the imminent demolition of a beloved football pitch as part of an ongoing regeneration around a council Estate. Three life-long friends Omz, Bilal and Joseph face all what they’ve known being aggressively taken away from them, not only in the form of their football pitch but importantly, their community and their friendship.

It is a piece that tackles the topic of regeneration or gentrification as some may refer to it, through the lens of three 16-year-old male voices, discussing the topic in a way so seldom heard.
