Description

Fringe First winner returns for one week only. Against stunning gospel and blues sung live, two women 42 years apart join the struggle for American civil rights: notorious Black Panther Assata Shakur and a present-day student enrolling as the Ferguson riots begin. Both have the same choice: fight or flee? From the creator of the hit show Black Is the Color of My Voice. Highly Commended – Amnesty Freedom of Expression Award. 'Most powerful voice of this year's Fringe.' ***** (Scotsman). 'Inspiring, fast, exciting and engaging play. Ended with the audience standing and applauding.' ***** (BritishTheatreGuide.info).
