By Barry Keeffe. Directed by Gbolahan Obisesan.
Delroy, a young black man, is told by the police that his wife is dead and then accused of her murder. He is taken into custody under 'Sus' a 185 year law that allowed a police officer to hold a person in custody for 24 hours on suspicion of a crime alone.
Written in 1979 at the dawn of Thatcherism, Sus is a powerful and politicised cry against the still-current threat of institutional racism. Keeffe pulls no punches with his depiction of a corrupt world which looks all too familiar today.
