Indra theatre present Albert & Equiano at the Rose Theatre. The remarkable story of Nigerian, Olaudah the abolition of the slavery movement.

Albert and Equiano tells the story of the remarkable 18th century Nigerian Olaudah Equiano, who became a leading figure in the abolition of the slavery movement, through the eyes of a disenchanted museum caretaker in South West England. Deep in the museum basement Albert uncovers a portrait he has never seen before, which has an unusual and powerful effect on him. Both Albert and audience are taken on an imaginative roller coaster through time and space as this extraordinary story unfolds.
