Every word counts

Freeman [Edinburgh Festival Fringe]

Freeman [Edinburgh Festival Fringe]


Inspired by the first man in America to plead insanity as his defence, award-winning writer Camilla Whitehill and Strictly Arts examine the unspoken link between mental health and systemic racism.

Throughout time and across waters, from William Freeman to Sarah Reed, six true stories are threaded together and told through physical theatre, spoken word, gospel singing, shadow puppetry and more.

History is bound to repeat itself when the thumb is permanently bearing down on the loop button, so has anything really changed?

'The play capitalises on the company's impressive versatility and a searing rage against injustice' (WhatsOnLive.co.uk).
