Post-show discussions each evening with Rachel Morris, psychotherapist and broadcaster.

Supported by a Wellcome Trust People Award. Developed and produced by In Company Collective. Manchester performances supported by Superbia and Richmond Tea Rooms.

Black was originally commissioned by homotopia and created with funding from Arts Council England and support from

Pink Fringe, Nightingale Theatre and Colchester Arts Centre.
