Description

Theatre Poster - Caribbean Women in Theatre, Oct. 1986

Theatre of Black Women (1982), listed on this poster, was established in Dalston by Bernardine Evaristo, Patricia Hilaire and Paulette Randall. It was in response to the lack of roles for Black actors at the time.

Its aim was to promote positive depictions of Black women. Their characters were independent, and were shown discovering and celebrating their own Black identity and supporting one another. The company ran workshops on drama and theatre writing for young women in Hackney.
