Part of Africa Utopia

Don’t miss this award-winning theatre performance that follows two women’s fight for civil rights.

One is notorious Black Panther Assata Shakur; the other, a present-day university student enrolling as the Ferguson riots begin.

Set against a powerful soundtrack of original music and traditional gospel and blues sung live, the two women challenge the American justice system, become criminalised through political activism, and ultimately are faced with the same choice: stay and fight, or flee?

Wokewon the coveted Scotsman Fringe First Award for its premiere season, and was highly commended by the judges of the Amnesty Freedom of Expression Award.

Apphia Campbell is the creator of the hit show Black is the Color of My Voice, which toured to sold-out audiences in Shanghai, New York, the UK and at Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
