Road Productions presents: History on the Road by Aaliyah McKay

Thursday 21 October 2021

A play about black female empowerment and the importance of family, History on the Road looks at the historical changes in race laws made at Mary’s family owned salon over the 50 years.


What to expect

With Mary’s family-owned hair salon closing, she looks back to the black rights protests and political changes that she has been a part of, and that history has seen. The characters reflect on their protesting at the Black People’s Day of Action in 1981 and the lasting impacts on black young people today. With music bringing fun, joy, and energy, we watch as people come and go in the family-run salon, sharing their moments in history.

A performance of family, love, and female-solidarity, History on the Road is an exploration of black rights and culture in London.
