Fresh from winning two OFFIES Awards, opening the Bermuda Festival and by popular demand, SOLD returns to Oxford as part of its finale.

SOLD is the story of Mary Prince and her journey to overcome the brutality of enslavement through the power of her indomitable spirit. She was born in enslavement in the British Caribbean colony of Bermuda but went on to become an abolitionist and autobiographer. Her book was the first account of the life of a Black woman to be published in the UK, and her first-hand description of the brutalities of enslavement had a galvanising effect on the anti-slavery movement.

Told through theatre, song, drumming and dance, SOLD is a masterpiece of Black British theatre relying on a form that relives the storytelling traditions of the West African griot. Presented in partnership with the Oxford Windrush Group, an evening of performance, debates and conversations until 10.15pm.

★★★★★ “There are pieces of theatre that come about that need to be seen, that have a frightening relevance and a timeless power that will leave you both incredibly moved but also reflective of the world we find ourselves in. SOLD is one of those pieces.” – Within Her Words

★★★★★ “Unique, moving and transcendent” – AskTheUshers

★★★★★ “Every so often there is a piece that touches the soul. SOLD is one such show” – Music Theatre Review
