Freeman comes to the Belgrade Theatre, Coventry from Weds 5 – Sat 8 Sept after a critically-acclaimed, sell-out run at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, with brilliant responses from everyone from The New York Times to Lenny Henry.
Inspired by the first man in America to plead insanity as his defence, award-winning writer Camilla Whitehill and Strictly Arts examine the unspoken link between mental health and systemic racism. Throughout time and across waters, from William Freeman to Sarah Reed, six true stories are threaded together and told through physical theatre, spoken word, gospel singing, shadow puppetry and more.
★★★★★ “a powerful, graceful demand for us to sit up and listen” Edinburgh Guide
