Overview

Documentary about how a number of black social workers and playwrites struggle to open a theatre workshop in the London black ghetto of Brixton. In spite of the desparate opinions of the community and lack of funds, the nucleus of the workshop succeeds in involving growing numbers of people in a theatrical context to express some of their deepest emotions, both social and political.
