RATES: £100 per Day
LOCATION: London
DATES: Autumn/Winter
 
IMPERTINENCE takes a dark and subtly humorous look at multiculturalism in Britain whilst pushing the boundaries of political correctness. Hard-hitting performances from this character driven story, shatters the ideology of modern day Britain, and delves into the underbelly of our collective consciousness. Unearthing many surprises and unexpected realities. This prime-time production is not for the faint-hearted or the easily offended.
 
Several stories interweave during a heat wave in London involving a collection of interrelated characters. An illiterate builder helplessly copes against the emotional abuse from his fiancée and seeks solace from a Vicar who is dealing with his own internal conflicts, and external pressures to modernise his church. A foreign shop assistant faces language barriers and has no family to turn to, all alone and in London she battles to escape her dark past. A British born Islamic science teacher diplomatically deals with the constant pressure from his Mosque to change his teachings to fall in line with his faith, alongside increased tension stemming from recent terrorist attacks. A newly converted EDL member faces the turmoil of his sister dating an immigrant, with the world on her shoulders; her choices will affect the course of all their lives forever.
 
Shot in a similar style to Hollywood movies such as CRASH and MILLION DOLLAR BABY, the cinematography and direction will highlight the journey and subtext of our leading cast.
