Producer Fiona McDonald discusses The Riverside Studio’s new play ‘Slave – A Question of Freedom’ - winner of the inaugural Man Eve News Pete Postlethwaite Best New Play Award 2011.
There are now ten times more people enslaved than at the height of the transatlantic slave trade. ‘Slave’ tells the shocking true story of Mende Nazer: taken from the remote Nuba Mountains of Sudan by raiders, Mende finally escapes her life of slavery when passed to a diplomat’s family, only to face a new struggle for asylum and freedom in London.
