Roots theatre poster, Woodville Road, Thornton Heath
Posters in Thornton Heath frequently advertise "roots" plays touring from Jamaica. The flamboyant Keith "Shebada" Ramsey is a current star of that scene (LinkExternal link ), having risen to prominence initially in the hit "Bashment Granny" (LinkExternal link ).
Roots theatre
"Roots" theatre is a genre originating in Jamaica, where it is perceived by some as down-market, populist and set against a more "respectable" mainstream. It is characterised by heavy use of patois, sometimes broad comedy and "ghetto" stereotypes. In the United Kingdom roots plays tour as a circuit of their own, using venues off the main theatrical circuit and presumably playing to a very largely Caribbean-heritage audience.
