Description

Award-winning solo returns for four shows only. Against stunning gospel and blues sung live, two women 42 years apart join the struggle for American civil rights. Both are faced with the same choice: fight or flee? Woke won the coveted Scotsman Fringe First award and was highly commended by the judges of the Amnesty Freedom of Expression Award. Playing in rep with Apphia's classic Black is the Color of My Voice, direct from a sell-out London run. 'Most powerful voice of the Fringe' ***** (Scotsman). 'Inspiring! Fast, exciting and engaging... ended with the audience standing and applauding' ***** (BritishTheatreGuide.info).

Ms Campbell’s performance got right under my skin in a way that I couldn’t have foreseen. By the end I was I was crying uncontrolledly. I realised that I had been made to feel something that I had hitherto experienced as just ideas and that I had been mistaking this for knowledge. The play took me into the heart of the fire of racism and I felt the heat. Isn’t this what theatre should be doing?

Great show that combines captivating songs and a story that needs telling. One woman powerhouse!
