Last week ‘Muscovado’ journeyed to Liverpool, Brighton and Bridport! Here’s a snapshot of the cities we visited that all retain the footprint of slavery and the sugar trade…

We got some great reviews too!
****** – “Tremendous… The best little touring productions you will be lucky to catch this year” – Bridport Review
**** – “The production successfully evokes the claustrophobic confines of plantation life…The island’s wilting heat radiates from the sextet of characters who are in a constant state of perspiration, and the microcosm community and oppressive climate turns some a little mad – Liverpool Echo

And wonderful audience feedback from satisfied customers:
“Best play I’ve seen in a long time” – audience member Liverpool

“For me, the performance was all great things in one small space – mesmerising, poignant, memorable, true to itself, and woven as tight as a canvas – with not a wasted second. ‘Muscovado’ will stay with me for a long time, thank you.” – Audience member, Bridport
