PERFORMANCE: Don’t miss The Colored Museum, a hilarious show performed by the acclaimed Talawa Theatre Company.

The Colored Museum is a satirical comedy which has delighted and discomforted audiences since it was written in America in 1986. Taking place in a cultural museum, the 11 living 'exhibits' explore African-American identity in an exhibition of stereotypes. Through characters like the pert and ever-smiling Miss Pat, airline hostess for Celebrity Slaveship, George C. Wolfe confronts history and clichés with gutsy humour.

Saturday 15 – Sunday 23 October, 13.00
16, 22 & 23 October, 15.30
18 & 22 October, 19.00 (Please enter via Exhibition Road)

Presented in collaboration with Talawa Theatre Company.
