Camden People’s Theatre
26th March - 28th March

We Owe You a Legacy is a deeply felt, lyrical exploration of the way colonialism has infiltrated the mother-daughter relationship in contemporary black diaspora communities.

Considering the mother as a figure in post-colonial discourse, Marion Burge and her team of collaborators interrogate the legacy of colonialism. The trauma, the consequence, the blood and the sacrifice.

We Owe You a Legacy is a guilt ridden journey through the colonial residue of the past and the hopeful expectancy of the future. It is a loving tribute to the powerful presence of the mother and a tense wrestling match with the responsibilities that are inherited by women of the African diaspora.

Price: £10 - £12
