As part of our SheCAN initiative to get more Black women and WOC to experience the arts who may not always find it affordable or accessible or who may want to work in the arts, gain knowledge or experience the arts, we have joined forces with the Royal Exchange Manchester to giveaway two tickets to Rockets and Blue Lights by Winsome Pinnock. One lucky winner will get two tickets for press night on the 17th of March to mix with the stars and meet the cast.
SheCAN aims to create opportunities and experiences for women (there is no age restrictions ) within the creative industries, from mentoring to jobs to training, free events.
‘I am the slave ship. Wrecked. Empty. I am a shark, livid with the desire for blood. I am the sea, boiling with fury.’
Amid the gloom of Victorian England, Thomas, a black sailor prepares to take one last voyage, while an ageing Turner seeks artistic inspiration in a half-remembered story.
In 21st Century London, an actress finds herself handcuffed by history – two centuries after abolitionists won her ancestors their freedom.
Winner of the 2018 Alfred Fagon Award, Winsome Pinnock’s astonishing new play retells British history through the prism of the slave trade. Fusing fact with fiction, past with present, the powerfully personal with the fiercely political, this epic production asks who owns our past – and who has the right to tell its stories?
To win: Name 2 plays by Pinnock all answers must be in by 15 March 2020. Please note the event is in Manchester and in the evening. email: editor@ alt- africa. com.
