Woke: Apphia Campbell
From the creator of the our sell-out show about Nina Simone, Black Is The Color Of My Voice, comes a new story about the 20th Century African American experience. Against a powerful soundtrack of original music and traditional gospel and blues, two women, 42 years apart become involved in the struggle for civil rights. One, a notorious Black Panther, Assata Shakur; the other, Ambrosia, a present-day university student enrolling as the 2014 Ferguson riots begin. Both challenge the American justice system, become criminalized through political activism, and ultimately are faced with the same choice: stay and fight, or flee? Woke won the coveted Scotsman Fringe First Award for its premiere season, and was highly commended by the judges of the Amnesty Freedom of Expression Award.
