Black Men Walking

Black Men Walking

4 (2) · New Writing, Contemporary

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

Overview

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.

Black Men Walking is directed by Eclipse Theatre’s Artistic Director Dawn Walton and is part of Revolution Mix. Taking more than 500 years of Black British history as a starting point, the ‘Revolution Mix’ writers are creating and producing an ambitious body of work which will enrich the canon of British theatre with untold British stories.
