The Pittsburgh Cultural Trust says
Step back in time and submerse yourself into the incomparable story of Charles Ignatius Sancho. A man born on a slave ship but never a slave, who was immortalized by the great English painter Thomas Gainsborough, and in 1774, became the first British-African to cast a vote.

In this endlessly revealing, often funny one-man show, celebrated Royal Shakespeare Company actor Paterson Joseph (Julius Caesar, 2013 Winter/Spring; HBO’s The Leftovers) delivers a masters touch as he inhabits the curious, daringly determined life of the composer, social satirist and general man of refinement. Joseph abundantly illustrates and uncovers the grit and passion of a man forgotten by history but who deserves praise and illumination.

You owe it to yourself to experience this rare glimpse into the often-misunderstood narrative of the African-British diaspora.
