Gazebo are doing new show for Black History month, provocatively called “Sorry! No Coloureds, No Irish, No Dogs”, on national tour from Monday.
It brings together the most powerful monologues from their Black History Series, in an exploration of racism, migration and the transatlantic slave trade. Featuring, amongst others, Mary Prince, Olaudah Equiano, Walter Tull and Mary Seacole, this play from the writer and director of “Jamaica 50”, “Rivers to Cross” and “Sweet Tooth” is not to be missed!
Hear, amongst others, the stories of Mary Prince, whose autobiography about the brutalities of slavery was the first account of the life of a black woman to be published in the UK; of Walter Tull, the World War 1 hero who was the first person of Afro-Carribean heritage to be commissioned as an infantry officer in the British Army; and of Mary Seacole, who bravely tended to wounded soldiers on the battlefields of the Crimean War.
Tonia Daley-Campbell and Oraine Johnson give truly fantastic performances!
Pre-booking is advised.
