Charles Sancho Ignatius was born on a slave ship but never a slave; he was immortalized by the great English painter Thomas Gainsborough, and in 1774 became the first British-African to cast a vote. In this endlessly revealing, often funny one-man show, celebrated Royal Shakespeare Company actor Paterson Joseph (HBO’s The Leftovers) inhabits the curious, daringly determined life of Sancho—composer, social satirist, general man of refinement—while casting new light on the often misunderstood narratives of African-British experience.
