One House in London worth a fortune, one property developer, three bedsits was the show’s opening premise. Evicted told the story of three households struggling to find peace and wellbeing, whose worlds are turned upside down when they are forced from their homes. The show tackled a number of hard-hitting issues. Most notably, the idea that when a world becomes so obsessed with money and making profits the rights of individuals, particularly the poor and less enfranchised minorities, can be overlooked.
Unlike MUJU’s first play, Tunnel Vision which had been a series of sketches, Evicted was a play in which all characters revolved around one central story and demonstrated the MUJU Crew’s artistic growth and development.
The show was very well received and ran on three occasions at the Tricycle Theatre in Kilburn. Given the show’s thought provoking content, Evicted formed part of a school’s tour which involved MUJU performing the show followed by running a workshop to discuss the play’s themes. The School’s tour included the College of North East London, as well as a matinee performance at the Tricycle which was opened exclusively to school children.
