YORKSHIRE’S very own Red Ladder Theatre Company is heading back to Pocklington later this month with a brand new production which explores race and identity.

The show ‘My Voice Was Heard’ But It Was Ignored, to be performed at Pocklington Arts Centre (PAC) is a gripping drama that takes the audience to the centre of a discussion that asks ‘if you see something you do not agree with, do you intervene’?

PAC director, Janet Farmer, said: “We are delighted to be welcoming Red Ladder Theatre Company back to PAC with this thought provoking new production.

“Red Ladder are a highly reputable and radical national touring company producing top quality plays, so to have them return to PAC is just wonderful.”

The stage debut of writer Nana-Kofi Kufuor is an interrogation of black identity for which he has drawn on his own experience of growing up in Stockport with Ghanaian parents and working in education with young people from a range of backgrounds.

The show will come to PAC on November 25, tickets are on sale now at the venue’s website.
