Winner of Best Ensemble Edinburgh Fringe 2019 & Show of the Week VAULT Festival 2020
When one woman tells of her extraordinary journey to overcome the brutality of slavery, she becomes a beacon for the British anti-slavery movement. Born into slavery in the British colony of Bermuda, Mary Prince went on to become an auto-biographer and champion of freedom. Her book had an electrifying effect on the abolitionist movement helping to free many Africans in bondage.
Through theatre, song, music, drumming and dance, this masterpiece of Black British theatre by Kuumba Nia Arts is inspired by the storytelling traditions of the West African griot.
