An outrageous comic drama about imperialism, cross-racial adoption, cultural appropriation…and tea.
Brighton, 1862. A day in the life of Sarah, an African girl, adopted by Queen Victoria and raised in the Queen’s circles. Today is the eve of her having to return to Africa but will she go?
The present. A day in the life of Sarah, a black middle-class woman staying in a Cheshire village with her husband and small child. They are paid a visit by well-meaning neighbours who have something to confess…
The two Sarahs meet Queen Victoria for tea. This won’t be your regular tea party…
The fourth national tour born from Revolution Mix – an Eclipse movement that is spearheading the largest ever delivery of new Black British stories. The first Revolution Mix story was the sell-out production of Black Men Walking.
The Gift is perfect for anyone who enjoyed our previous co-production with Eclipse, A Raisin in the Sun, or any of our Hidden Histories shows such as: Freeman, Red Snapper, Wipers and Pink Sari Revolution.
