Adapting theatre for the screen can be tricky work, but director and playwright debbie tucker green makes it look effortless. Dynamic and absorbing (as well as brilliantly soundtracked), ear for eye traces racial injustice across time and continents, detailing struggle and triumph, oppression and uprising. Designed as a hybrid piece to work on both the big and small screen, this astonishingly realised and powerful work is as prescient now as it was when it debuted on stage in 2018. With an ensemble cast including Lashana Lynch, Tosin Cole, Danny Sapani and Arinzé Kene, ear for eye as is a searing and unforgettable vision from one of our greatest Black British creative talents.
