Olaudah Equiano, The Enslaved African

Olaudah Equiano, The Enslaved African

Kidnapped with his sister at the age of eleven, Olaudah Equiano is beaten, suffocated and tortured on a journey to the coast which sees him separated from his sister and sold to British traders. Once on board a slave ship, Equiano’s encounters of the “Middle Passage” alter his life in ways barely imaginable.

Set in the heart of West Africa during the height of the British slave trade, Olaudah Equiano, The Enslaved African, Written and Directed by Adam Tulloch, is an honest, uncompromising and moving portrayal of one of slavery’s victims.   

Please note, the production contains nudity and scenes of a violent nature. The production may therefore only be suitable for those over 18.
