Black Men Walking

Thu 26 - Sat 28 April 2018

Spring 2018 |
An Eclipse Theatre Company and Royal Exchange Theatre co-production

BLACK MEN WALKING
Written by Testament
Directed by Dawn Walton


“We walk. Though we are written into the landscape you don’t see us. We walked England before the English.”

Thomas, Matthew and Richard walk.

They walk the first Saturday of every month. Walking and talking. But this walk…

Maybe they should have cancelled, but they needed the walk today. Out in the Peaks, they find themselves forced to walk backwards through two thousand years before they can move forwards.

Dedicated to the Black Men’s Walking Group. A Revolution Mix story.

Black Men Walking is the first national tour born from Revolution Mix – a three year movement that will spearhead the largest ever national deliver of Black British stories.
