A unique immersive theatrical tour for Black History Month fictionalizing a meeting by key members of the 18th and early 19th century British abolitionist movement. A celebration of 18th century Black British Abolitionists such as Olaudah Equiano and Mary Prince, and women such as Mary Birkett Card, who along with William Wilberforce used the power of their stories to end the slave trade. Through speeches, personal narratives, and song, we tell their stories in their own words.
Performing in the beautiful Ullet Road Unitarian Church in Liverpool, and other historic churches with close ties to the slave trade and abolition across the country, the site specific performance brings to life the stories and testimonies of those brave enough to take on the slave trade.
This production is created with support from Arts Council England, Unity Trust, Brunel University Research and Engagement and East 15 School of Acting, University of Essex Research.
