Under Heaven’s Eyes

Tuesday 17 August - Wednesday 18 August 2021

Under Heaven’s Eyes is a 60 minute solo word play that asks if the killing of George Floyd marks a turning point for real change or just another false dawn? Despite the global outcry and public machinations over the murder of George Floyd, in America the police continue to instigate indiscriminate, discriminatory and disproportional violence against Black and Brown communities.

Is there a parallel history of structural inequality in Britain that encapsulates and underlines a deep racist mistrust between the Black community and the police?

‘…what never waivers is Tajah’s skilful…powerful writing possesses a balance of logical premise with emotional and inventive creativity’ ★★★★ (Dominic Corr, theWee Review) In 2019 Christopher performed at theSpaceUK & The Warren: Theatre-Box as MLK Jr in the OFFIE Nominated ‘Dream of a King’. ‘An engaging performance’ ★★★★ (Richard Beck Broadway Baby)

Michael Livington is a Black 42-year Accountant. He lives in London with his wife and two teenage children. But ever since he witnessed the killing of George Floyd, Michael hasn’t been able to get it out of his mind throwing his life into freefall.

“We watched that viral footage of those white police officers murdering that black man. It churns my insides even now just replaying the memory of George’s dying moments with Chavuin’s knee on his neck with cold, calculated, callous, chilling contempt.”

“This play will make you think, and might even encourage audiences to seek out the stories of those across multi-ethnic communities who were – and are – pioneers, peacemakers, and provocateurs.” **** – LouReviews
