Eye opening, thought provoking and captivating performance next week in Telford
Oakengates Theatre @ The Place is to host a powerful performance centred on issues of race and prejudice next week.
“Sorry, No Coloureds, No Irish, No Dogs” - Wednesday 17 May, 7.30pm
Produced and presented by the charity ‘Gazebo Theatre in Education Company’ this powerful play is an exploration of racism and migration. Two strangers find themselves in a room of suitcases, books and stories which take them on a journey of discovery, reflection and tragedy, and bring the events of hundreds of years gone before bang up to date.
Featuring, amongst others, Mary Seacole, Walter Tull, Black Panther - Obi Egbuna, Queen Nanny of the Maroons and William, who sailed aboard the SS Empire Windrush, this play is eye opening, thought provoking and set to stimulate discussion.
Tickets are priced £15, concessions £12.
