Sheffield, 1859. Ned, a Zulu man, arrives from southern Africa. A refugee, servant, fugitive, prisoner, and purportedly enslaved, Ned’s life was made a spectacle, but his own perspectives were scarcely documented. Drawing on research by Dr Rosie Knight of the Department of History, actor, director, and writer John Rwothomack has created a powerful theatre performance reimagining Ned’s tumultuous life.
