Nigeria, England, America, Jamaica - are you proud of where you're from?
Dark skinned, light skinned, afro, weaves - who are your true brothers and sisters?

A debut work produced at the Royal Court's Young Writers Festival, Gone Too Far! is a comic and astute play about identity, history and culture, portraying a world where respect is always demanded but rarely freely given

“Agbaje has an astute eye and ear and offers a different perspective to her male counterparts” ~ Guardian
“In her remarkable debut as a playwright Bola Agbaje walks two teenage black brothers around a dilapidated London council estate. She exploits their close encounters to give us a jolting lesson about the range of identities, beliefs and anxieties concealed beneath black or blackish skins” ~ Evening Standard
