26-27 Mar: Black Waters. In 1782, the owners of the Zong ship claimed insurance on the lives of the 130 slaves thrown overboard. Over 100 years later, the Kala Pani prison (‘Black Waters’ in Hindi) was used by the British to contain Indian independence activists in horrendous conditions. These two stories inspire a powerful commentary on colonialism in this new work. Please check for times. Tickets £18.
