Dorothee in the 18th Century
Cryerarts theatre, Carshalton, SM5 3BB
In the early 1700’s there were a handful of African Caribbeans in Sutton. They endured a precarious life of indeterminate legal status and the possibility of freedom in England or a return to family and community but definite enslavement in the West Indies.
Five ASide Theatre, Sutton African Caribbean Cultural Organisation have joined with the people of Sutton in creating a dynamic production reimaging the lives of 18th Century African Caribbeans in Sutton through narrative, poetry, music and art. Join us for their compelling story.
