News

A modern love story written by Matt Jones with music by Kele Okereke.

Give me your worst day
I’ll take the strain
Give me all the times you go insane
Your leave to remain

Obi (Tyrone Huntley) and Alex (Billy Cullum) are a young gay couple leading busy London lives.

When Alex’s visa comes into question, their relationship takes a turn. Marriage is an option, but the timing isn’t perfect, and it means confronting their families and their pasts.

Told through a mix of music, movement and drama, Leave to Remain is a tender portrait of love in the face of an uncertain future, featuring original new songs by Bloc Party’s Kele Okereke performed by the cast.
