Legacy takes place in two fully accessible venues and you will be escorted between the two.

What’s in a name? Should we pin our colours to the philanthropic acts of a slave trader? Can something good emerge from something heinously bad?

Directed by TRB Associate Artist Lee Lyford (The Snow Queen/The Elephant Man, Bristol Old Vic) written by Papatango Prize-winner Matt Grinter and performed by a company of local adults, Legacy unpicks this most thorny of dilemmas.

Set in an apparently peaceable leafy village, the community gather to debate their complicated history. People talk passionately about forgiveness, responsibility, morality and community, and the need to speak out against a wrong, a wrong that happened before they were born. Quietly, however, something terrible begins to happen among them. Something that each one of them tries their best to ignore.

The Legacy company comprise a group of adults who came together for the first time last September as part of TRB’s Theatre School project. This is their debut show.

Adults: £10
Concessions: £7
