At the Lowry in Salford, a play about slavery
In a Salford theatre a play about slavery is showing. Mende Nazer was a child in Sudan sold into slavery. Seven years later she was passed to a diplomat's family in London and then she escaped and sought asylum. She has advised on making the production authentic.
Slave: A Question of Freedom is performed by the Feelgood Theatre company at The Lowry in Salford.
On 30 November 2010 there will be a private performance of extracts from the play at the House of Lords in London, in support of parliamentary motions.
