Sancho: An Act of Remembrance

Celebrated Royal Shakespeare Company actor Paterson Joseph (HBO’s The Leftovers, NBC’s You, Me and the Apocalypse) inhabits the curious, daringly determined life of Charles Ignatius Sancho—composer, social satirist, general man of refinement. Born on a slave ship but never a slave, Sancho became the first black person of African origin to vote in Britain. Among his circle of friends was David Garrick, celebrated Shakespeare actor and theater owner. A renowned man of letters, Sancho quoted Shakespeare more than he did any other author in his writing. This endlessly revealing, frequently funny one-man show casts a new light on the often misunderstood narratives of African-British experience.
