Runtime: 90 minutes
Conceived, written and performed by Paterson Joseph

He was born on a slave ship but never a slave. He was immortalized by the great English painter Thomas Gainsborough, and in 1774 became the first British-African to vote. In this revealing and humorous one-man show, celebrated Royal Shakespeare Company actor Paterson Joseph (NBCs Timeless and HBOs The Leftovers) inhabits the curious, daringly determined Charles Sancho Ignatiuscomposer, social satirist, general man of refinementwhile shining light on the often misunderstood narratives of African-British experience. Dont miss this Philadelphia premiere!
