Tanesha & the Troubled City

It’s no secret London’s been suffering an upsurge in knife crime, and suspected murder victims are often younger now. Tanesha Melbourne-Blake was shot and killed in Tottenham on April 2nd, an innocent victim of a possible gang feud. Adrian starts with her fatal shooting to illustrate the wider problem and to put it in context, in this reflective ‘Letter from London’ monologue.

Ultimately, he asks how the capital can move on to a safer future?
