This event takes place at Belgrade Theatre B2 Stage
Quiet Rebels is based on the forgotten true-life stories of white working-class women who crossed ‘the colour line’ to marry men from the Windrush generation.
Set in a dystopian England where race traitors are jailed, a detective hunts for the killers of a white woman who defied authority and social stigma by falling in love with and marrying a man from Trinidad.
As her investigation takes her from London to Liverpool, Detective Shade begins to learn more about her own life, and the enduring power of love and courage in the face of ignorance and intolerance.
This is a celebration of the Quiet Rebels, and the strength of the women and men whose defiance and bravery laid the basis of the multi-cultural society we all benefit from today.
A post-show discussion will take place following the performance on Thurs 15 Sept.
Supported by Arts Council England, the Garrick Charitable Trust, Hackney Empire, City Bridge Trust, the Unity Theatre Trust, the National Lottery Community Fund and made possible with The National Lottery Heritage Fund, with thanks to National Lottery players.
