A forgotten story giving one woman's first-hand account of brutality at the height of the slave trade.

Powerful and entertaining, this true story is told with traditional African Griot storytelling fused with theatre, singing, music, poetry, drumming and dance.

"To be free is very sweet"

When one woman tells of her extraordinary journey to overcome the brutality of slavery, she becomes a beacon for the British anti-slavery movement.

Born into slavery in the British colony of Bermuda, Mary Prince went on to become an auto-biographer and champion of freedom. Her book had an electrifying effect on the abolitionist movement helping to free many Africans in bondage.

Through theatre, song, music, drumming and dance, this masterpiece of Black British theatre is inspired by the storytelling traditions of the West African griot.

"Every so often there is a piece that touches the soul. SOLD is one such show."
