“In Unexpected Places”

Wednesday 20th & Thursday 21st October 2021 at 7.30pm
Millfield Theatre, Silver Street, Edmonton, London N18 1PJ

These are re-scheduled performances from Saturday 11th & Sunday 12th April 2020, performances now taking place Wednesday 20th & Thursday 21st October 2021.

First Republic Works are pleased to announce the latest chapter in their “Voices of Black Folk” series, “Black Voices in Britain Before The Windrush.” The theme of their 2019 production is revisited with a new character added and with other adaptations to the original script

The inspiration for this spotlight on Britain is the recent focus on immigration & The Windrush generation, with that influx of African Caribbean people coming into Britain, the pervading assumption is that this was somehow the introduction of black people en masse into these islands.

However the missing pages of British history - that which is never taught in schools or academia - presents a whole different narrative. The truth is that African people have always been present in these islands, and there is a rich body of scholarly work to substantiate this, though conveniently ignored by mainstream education.

This production written and directed by Khareem Jamal - one the creators of Black Heroes in The Hall of Fame - uses drama, in the shape of four vignettes, to shed light on some of the characters that are missing from the annals of British history.

Tickets: £15 | £10 Concessions | £5 Children Under 12
