Drama confronting the complex and sometimes uncomfortable issues of British identity.

Radio 4 drama

Kuba, a jaw-droppingly handsome hipster barista, is part of a new breed of Polish immigrant who no longer needs to escape hardship but rather wants to explore the world. Working in a popular third-wave coffee shop in Shoreditch, London, he has mastered the British accent and almost passes as a "native".

The night after the Brexit vote, Kuba is severely beaten, losing not only his good looks but oddly enough his perfect British accent too.

This drama, about the complex and sometimes uncomfortable issues of British identity and xenophobia, is narrated by the Queen, voiced by Lin Sagovsky.
