Master Juba

Friday 13 & Saturday 14 October 2006

SNAP in association with Greenwich and Lewisham's Young People's Theatre present Master Juba based on the real life story of William Henry Lane, a brilliant young Black dancer of freed slave heritage, brought to London by PT Barnum to dance for Queen Victoria in 1854.

A story of artistry defeating exploitation, and elevated to stardom by Charles Dickens, it follows Juba, who bids to become the 'champion dancer of the world'. If he wins he no longer has to wear the Black Face mask of the minstrel, if he loses he is enslaved by his heritage for ever.
