Paterson Joseph’s one-man show Sancho, An Act of Remembrance will be staged in Oxford and Birmingham prior to a US tour.

The play, written and performed by Joseph, was commissioned by the Oxford Playhouse and originally staged at the Burton Taylor Studio Theatre there in 2011.

This new production will run at the Oxford Playhouse, on the main stage, from September 17 to 19, before playing at the Birmingham Rep from September 22 to 25.

It will tour the US from October to February next year.

The one-man show is about composer, actor and writer Charles Ignatius Sancho, who became the first British African to vote in Britain.

It will be co-directed by Simon Godwin, with music and sound design by Ben Park and design by Michael Vale. Lighting is by Lucrecia Briceno.

It is produced by Pemberley Productions in association with the Oxford Playhouse.
