Breaking the Silence created by Collisions Theatre Company in partnership with researchers from the University of Essex and Brunel University London.
Blurb: A unique immersive theatrical tour for Black History Month fictionalizing a meeting by key members of the 18th and early 19th century British abolitionist movement. We celebrate 18th century Black British Abolitionists such as Olaudah Equiano and Mary Prince, and women such as Mary Birkett Card, who along with William Wilberforce used the power of their stories to end the slave trade. Through speeches, personal narratives, and song, we tell their stories in their own words.
