Black Men Walking @ York Theatre Royal
Directed by Dawn Walton
Written by Testament
York Theatre Royal Studio, 10-14 September
“We walk. Though we are written into the landscape you don’t see us. We walked England before the English.”
The new season in York Theatre Royal Studio opens with Black Men Walking (10-14 Sept), the first story from Revolution Mix, an Eclipse movement spearheading the largest ever national delivery of new Black British stories.
Thomas, Matthew and Richard walk. They walk the first Saturday of every month. Walking and talking. But this walk …
Maybe they should have cancelled, but they needed the walk today. Out in the Peaks, they find themselves forced to walk backwards through two thousand years before they can move forwards.
The York date is part of a second UK tour following its huge sell-out success last year.
Dedicated to the Black Men’s Walking Group/Originally co-produced with Manchester Royal Exchange.
