Forgotten Voices


Thursday 27 October 2022

Join us at Blue Elephant for a compelling hour of storytelling celebrating Black History Month during half-term week!
Running time: 30 min performance + 30 min drama workshop

"If I put my mind to it, I can do it!"

Esther enjoys helping out on her parents' farm in Jamaica, but her biggest dream is to become a nurse. When England calls for people to come work there, she seizes the opportunity and sets sail for the "motherland" to make her dream come true!

Forgotten Voices is a storytelling show for ages 7-11 about the human side of Windrush, and pursuing one's dreams in an unfamiliar land.
The show will be followed by a 25-30 min workshop with the children.

This project is made possible by Southwark Council's Black History Month fund.
