'Muscovado' by BurntOut Theatre
Muscovado is the scorching new play by Matilda Ibini about slavery in Nineteenth Century Barbados. A heady mix of sexual intrigue, piercing choral music and extreme racial tension, Muscovado offers an intimate snapshot of life on the Fairbranch sugar plantation, accompanied by an original musical score and atmospheric soundscape performed live.
Muscovado will be touring to theatres and site-specific venues around the UK in 2015. More info at www.burntouttheatre.co.uk
Muscovado was commissioned and developed by BurntOut Theatre with support from V&A Museum, Arts Council England and Farnham Maltings.
Matilda Ibini trained on Royal Court's Writers Programme, is Soho Theatre's Writer-in-Residence and the youngest winner of BBCWritersroom10 Award.
