Black Men Walking

Tues 27th - 31st August

“We walk. Though we are written into the landscape you don’t see us.”

Eclipse Theatre Company presents Black Men Walking, directed by Dawn Walton, written by Testament.

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 first story from Revolution Mix – an Eclipse movement spearheading the largest ever national delivery of new Black British stories. Black Men Walking returns for a second UK tour following its huge sell-out success last year.

Dedicated to the Sheffield Black Men’s Walking Group.

Nominated for UK Theatre Awards ‘Best New Play’ and Writer’s Guild Awards ‘Best Play’.

Originally co-produced with Royal Exchange Theatre, Manchester.

Age guidance: suitable for 14 years+
