After an international tour, Paterson Joseph's new play receives its London premiere at Wilton's Music Hall. Co-directed by Simon Godwin, this is the little known story of a man who lived a remarkable life.

Born on a slave ship, educated in secret, he became a composer, actor, anti-slavery campaigner, and the first Afro-Briton to vote in a British general election. Sancho's story casts new light on the often misunderstood narratives of the African-British experience.

In this revealing, funny, one-man show, Paterson Joseph (National Theatre’s Emperor Jones, Royal Shakespeare Company’s Julius Caesar, Peep Show, Rellik, Timeless) inhabits the curious, daringly determined life of Charles 'Sancho' Ignatius.

Recommended for ages 10+
Running time: 70 minutes

There will be a post-show schools talk after the performance on Wednesday 13th June with a schools discount available.
