About the show
Two hundred years ago, Olaudah Equiano read the harrowing reports of a massacre aboard the slave ship Zong, where 133 Africans were thrown overboard. Joining forces with anti-slavery campaigner Granville Sharp to publicly condemn these actions, he helped set in motion events leading to the UK’s abolition movement. But Olaudah’s mission goes beyond the courtroom. Having bought his own freedom, he now faces a battle to rediscover his past and accept his true self.

Based on real-life historical events, this highly acclaimed play is performed by an ensemble cast including writer and Olivier Award-winner Giles Terera (Hamilton) and co-directed by Tom Morris (Touching the Void, War Horse). Find out more
