Tayo Aluko’s powerful and compelling performance revives one of the 20th century’s most impressive but overlooked figures. This roller-coaster journey through Mr Robeson’s remarkable and eventful life as a world-famous actor, singer and civil rights campaigner highlights how his pioneering and heroic political activism led many to describe him as the forerunner of the civil rights movement. It features much fiery oratory and some of his famous songs, including Ol’ Man River.
Licensed bar.
