Sancho: An Act of Remembrance

April 13 – 14, 2018  ·  Harold Prince Theatre
Runtime: 90 minutes

Philadelphia Premiere

Conceived, written and performed by Paterson Joseph
Co-directed by Simon Godwin

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 (NBC’s Timeless and HBO’s The Leftovers) inhabits the curious, daringly determined Charles “Sancho” Ignatius—composer, social satirist, general man of refinement—while shining light on the often misunderstood narratives of African-British experience. Don’t miss this Philadelphia premiere!
