Lawrence Batley Theatre / Events / Fri 21 Jun 2019



Strictly Arts
Winner of a Spirit of the Fringe Award and shortlisted for Amnesty International’s Freedom of Expression Award, Freeman is
inspired by the first man in America to plead insanity as his defence, and sees writer Camilla Whitehill and Strictly Arts examine the unspoken link between mental health and systemic racism.

Throughout time and across waters, from William Freeman to Sarah Reed, six true stories are threaded together and told through physical theatre, spoken word, gospel singing, shadow puppetry and more.

‘Freeman is a revelation, a piece of stunning physical theatre’
The Guardian

‘Both exciting and devastating…everybody should see it’
Edinburgh Guide
With a post-show discussion
