From the creator of the West End Sell-out Black Is The Color Of My Voice comes a new story about the 20th Century African American experience. Against a powerful soundtrack of original music and traditional gospel and blues, two women, 42 years apart, become involved in the struggle for civil rights.

One, a notorious Black Panther, Assata Shakur; the other, Ambrosia, a present-day university student enrolling as the 2014 Ferguson riots begin. Both challenge the American justice system, become criminalized through political activism, and ultimately are faced with the same choice: stay and fight, or flee?

Price: £10 - £12.50
