Freeman

Wednesday 18th October, 7:30pm

Freeman is inspired by the true story of William Freeman, a black man who was put on trial in 19th Century New York, and the first case to raise ‘insanity’ as a defence in America.

The story of William Freeman is used as a platform to explore the relationships between people of colour, the criminal justice system, and mental health; spanning from segregated 1846 America right up to the death of Sarah Reed in the UK in 2016.

Strictly Arts’ stunning mix of high-energy physical theatre, a cappella singing, humour and powerful drama, creates an extraordinarily moving and affecting experience for audiences.

Followed by a post show talk.

Ages 13+

Wednesday 18 October, 7.30pm
£12 / £9 concs.
