The Meaning of Zong: A Workshop Performance

back to shows book now

Presented by Bristol Old Vic

Giles Terera's new play examines the massacre aboard the slave ship Zong in 1781 and the repercussions of these events which influenced the growing abolition movement in the UK.

Jointly commissioned by the National Theatre and presented and developed with partner theatres in Liverpool, Glasgow and London, this evening's event is the first of a number of workshop performances and discussions in the Autumn, ahead of the play being fully staged in Spring 2019.

Giles Terera is an acclaimed actor, musician and filmmaker soon to begin performances in the UK production of Lin-Manuel Miranda's Hamilton - The Musical. This is his debut play.

In summer 2016 we began redevelopment works to transform our Front of House entrance on King Street into a welcoming, vibrant space that everyone will be able to enjoy. During this time, it will be business as usual in the Theatre with our brilliant programme on offer, however there are a few changes to how we'll be operating.

Theatre Entrance

You are now invited to enter the Theatre through our Stage Door, walking in the footsteps of theatre legends such as Peter O'Toole, Daniel Day-Lewis and Miranda Richardson.

Our temporary Theatre entrance can be accessed via Rackhay (BS1 4HJ) off Queen Charlotte Street, around the corner from King Street.

Ticket Collection

On performance days, tickets can be collected from Box Office situated in our Backstage Bar opening 90 mins prior to each performance.
