As the mother of a brown boy Just Theatre season

The true story about a mother and her mixed race son. The mother remembers the life, and untimely death, of her son, and his struggle for identity in a multi-racial society.

Told through dance, physical theatre, music and multimedia, the play questions injustice within society. It also questions intolerance, but above all, it honours the value of relationships, love, and  hope.

Highly acclaimed since its premiere  in 2007, As the Mother of a Brown Boy showcases Chickenshed’s unique performance styleIt concludes the Chickenshed ‘Just Theatre’ season, which ‘puts questions of Justice centre stage’ .
