The not-so-sweet story: Muscovado

Muscovado is a new play about slavery in Nineteenth Century Barbados.

It follows the stories of a planter family and their slaves, but in doing so, it sheds light on the British involvement in the slave trade.

The play has a personal connection to those behind it as it was commissioned after the director Clemmie Reynolds discovered archives on her family who lived in Barbados in the 1800s.

Clemmie joined Headline London along with Damilola K Fashola, who plays "Elsie" in the production.
