Paterson Joseph as Sancho - photo by Robert Day
After an international tour, Paterson Joseph's new play receives its London premiere at Wilton's Music Hall.
In this revealing, funny, one-man show, Paterson Joseph (National Theatre's Emperor Jones, Royal Shakespeare Company's Julius Caesar, Peep Show, Rellik, Timeless) inhabits the curious, daringly determined life of Charles 'Sancho' Ignatius.
Co-directed by Simon Godwin this is the little known story of a man who lived a remarkable life.
Born on a slave ship, educated in secret, Ignatius Sancho became a composer, actor, anti-slavery campaigner, and the first Afro-Briton to vote in a British general election.
Sancho's story casts new light on the often misunderstood narratives of the African-British experience.
