This is a new version of the critically acclaimed show re-staged for the festival with an 11-piece orchestra.
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.
