The Meaning of Zongby Giles Terera
Olivier Award-winner Giles Terera stars in his own debut play about the notorious massacre aboard the slave ship Zong in 1781, and how uncovering its story galvanised the growing Abolition movement in the UK.
This collaboration between Bristol Old Vic and Jonx Productions brings to BBC Radio 3 an audio production of this inspirational new stage play, developed by Bristol Old Vic and the National Theatre, directed by Tom Morris and produced by Jonquil Panting.
The Meaning of Zong is part of BBC Lights Up - ‘lighting up’ stages and studios across the UK by supporting hard-hit organisations and artists, and ensuring that audiences at home continue to have the opportunity to enjoy theatre across BBC platforms.
