After an international tour, Paterson Joseph’s new play receives its London premiere at Wilton's Music Hall. Co-directed by Simon Godwin this is the little known story of a man who lived a remarkable life.

Born on a slave ship, educated in secret he became a composer, actor, anti-slavery campaigner, and the first Afro-Briton to vote in a British general election. Sancho's story casts new light on the often misunderstood narratives of the African-British experience.

In this revealing, funny, one-man show, Paterson Joseph (National Theatre’s Emperor Jones, Royal Shakespeare Company’s Julius Caesar, Peep Show, Rellik, Timeless) inhabits the curious, daringly determined life of Charles ‘Sancho’ Ignatius.
