About this Production
"Clever and complex vision of black Britons, then and now... full of sharp, stinging dialogue"
You're invited to the most unconventional of tea parties...
Stratford East welcomes the London premiere of Eclipse Theatre's new play The Gift, written by Janice Okoh and directed by Dawn Walton. Inspired by the life of Sarah Forbes Bonetta, a West African girl of Yoruba descent ‘gifted’ to Queen Victoria, this is a subversive comedy drama about imperialism, cross-racial adoption, cultural appropriation... and tea.
In Victorian-era Brighton, young Sarah is preparing to return to Africa after being brought up under the Queen's royal guidance. Fast forward to the modern day and a black middle-class woman in Cheshire is visited by well-meaning neighbours with a confession to make.
Described by The Stage as "the company making strides in telling black Britain's lost stories", Eclipse’s previous productions include the sell-out production of Black Men Walking.
