Muscovado in Bristol

We were thrilled to take Muscovado to Bristol, since it was such a significant location during the Atlantic Slave Trade.

It’s known that between 1698 and 1807, 2,108 ships sailed from Bristol to Africa in order to swap goods for enslaved Africans, who were then taken to the Caribbean. The slave trade made Bristol an even wealthier trade port than it already was.

Muscovado spent 5 nights at The Alma Tavern and Theatre – here’s a picture of some of the cast during the tech run.

Go and watch it, and take a while to think about it afterward. So much is covered in this brilliantly acted performance,” Natalie Burns, Bristol 24/7

 

We also had some wonderful feedback from our audiences in Bristol last week!

Thank you for a truly wonderful and memorable performance. I found it very very authentic, and beautifully and sensitively acted. It put me in mind of Toni Morrison’s “Beloved” and I am sure it will be much appreciated wherever you take it. I hope you will return to Bristol with your company and will look out for you. Thank you again. Very warm wishes Sarah

Just wonderful, tonight in Bristol, at the Alma Theatre.
Thanks to everyone concerned. Teamwork amongst the actors never bettered in my 60+years involved in theatre.
I have family in Barbados. This company should take this play there. And another half-dozen Caribbean islands.
Audiences there would appreciate the story, the performance, the echoes – & would love Mr Reynolds’ fascinating sound-track.
Let me know if you never need a (small) investor.

It was an absolute pleasure to play at the Alma Theatre and we were glad the audiences enjoyed it so much.
