Why See Sancho: An Act of Remembrance?
Paterson's Joseph One Man Tribute To Sancho Ignatius' Legacy
The powerful and particularly poignant one man show Sancho: An Act Of Remembrance comes to Austin's McCullough Theatre for one night only this Winter. Written and performed by celebrated Royal Shakespeare Company actor Paterson Joseph, last seen in hit HBO drama series The Leftovers, the production tells the story of Charles Sancho Ignatius, a man who became the human symbol of the oppression of the slave trade.
Born on a slave ship in 1729, Sancho was taken to England after his parents' passing, where he worked for Duke John Montague. Impressed by the young boys aptitude, the Duke encouraged him to learn and read. The prodigious Sancho turned his hand to composing, acting and writing, gaining fame and becoming the first Black Briton to vote.
Performance date: 25 January 2018
