Purple Moon presents: Essentially Black

Black History Month, Drama, Dance and Performance, Young people
Wednesday 19th October 2022 (16:00-18:00)

Adapted for a younger audience from the sell-out show at Soho Theatre, Essentially Black looks at what happens when race and elite universities collide, and asks who truly has the right to protest in a time when representation and authenticity are being called into question.

Supporting Workshop (5pm-6pm)

Essentially Black comes with a professionally facilitated post-show workshop, that gives audiences the opportunity to unpack the themes of the show in a safe and creatively held space.

Suitable for ages: 15+ Price: Pay what you feel
