Freeman

About

Following its critically acclaimed sold out run at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, Freeman is touring the UK.

Winner of a Spirit of the Fringe Award and shortlisted for Amnesty International's Freedom of Expression Award, Freeman is inspired by the first man in America to plead Insanity as his defence and sees writer Camilla Whitehill (Where Do Little Birds Go?) and Strictly Arts examine the unspoken link between mental health and systemic racism.

Throughout time and across waters, from William Freeman to Sarah Reed, six true stories are threaded together and told through physical theatre, spoken word, gospel singing, shadow puppetry and more.

History is bound to repeat itself when the thumb is permanently bearing down on the loop button, so has anything really changed?

Age guidance: 14+ Some strong language and some scenes of a violent nature.

Warning: Includes some strobe effects

Culture for a fiver:
£5 for ages 25 and under, including organised school and FE college groups

Note: the Group Discount price does not apply to this offer
