Staged at Oldham Coliseum, My Voice Was Heard But It Was Ignored is a brand-new play by emerging playwright and Coliseum Supported Artists Nana-Kofi Kufuor.

Directed by Dermot Daly and produced by Red Ladder Theatre Company, this brand-new play interrogates racial identity and power.

When 15-year-old Reece is roughly accosted by the police outside M&S, his young Black teacher, Gillian, witnesses the brutal attack – but she doesn’t question or intervene. Fears around her own safety engulf her and she feels unable to do anything to help.

The next day the consequences of her lack of action come to the fore when she finds herself locked in a classroom with Reece. Annoyed and full of distrust, Reece refuses to unlock the door. He wants Gillian to pay and experience his pain.

Timely and resounding, this debut play examines Black identity and leaves audiences with the question: if you see something you don’t agree with, do you stand by or stand up?

This is a Covid-safe live performance. My Voice Was Heard But It Was Ignored will play to a socially distanced audience with limited capacity.
