“To be Free is very Sweet”
SOLD tells the story of Mary Prince and her journey to overcome the brutality of enslavement through the power of her indomitable spirit.
Born into slavery in the British colony of Bermuda, she went on to become an abolitionist and auto-biographer. Her book had a galvanising effect on the anti-slavery movement and aided in the emancipation of many enslaved African.
Fusing theatre, song, music, drumming and dance, and inspired by the storytelling traditions of the West African griot, SOLD is a masterpiece of Black British theatre.
SOLD is presented as part of the PROPELLER programme, a new initiative from The North Wall and Oxfordshire Theatre Makers showcasing the most exciting Oxfordshire companies.
