    Written by James Kenworth, directed by James Martin Charlton, Head of Media.

    Following the critical acclaim of James Kenworth’s When Chaplin Met Gandhi and Revolution Farm, two plays which were a unique collaboration between professional theatre artists and young people in Newham, A Splotch of Red is the third in a trilogy that explores the borough’s rich heritage and shows of the talent of its young people.
