Quiet Rebels

Friday 28th October

A new play written and directed by Julie McNamara and Hassan Mahamdallie.

 

Quiet Rebels – stories of white working-class women who crossed the colour line to marry men of the Windrush generation. Women who lived with the ignorance of racism and social stigma directed against them and their families, but who are the foundations of today’s multi-cultural communities.

Set in a dystopian England, Detective Shade investigates Aileen Burnett’s murder – a white woman who married a Black man. As a convicted race-traitor with four children, she had served time for ‘miscegenation’.

To solve the crime Shade travels the Multi-resistance’s Underground network to the Northern Free Zone where in facing her past, everything she thought she knew about herself and her world is challenged.

Film, movement, soundscapes with integrated creative access provide a powerful dramatisation of stories brought to life by Julie McNamara (The Knitting Circle) and Hassan Mahamdallie (The Crows Plucked Your Sinews) and a team of creative talent.

A Dervish Productions, Vital Xposure & Belgrade Theatre Co-Production in partnership with Soul City Arts & The Albany. Supported by Arts Council England, the Garrick Charitable Trust and City Bridge Trust.
