Greenwich SE10 8ES
Inspired by the life of Nina Simone, Black Is The Colour Of My Voice follows a successful jazz singer and civil rights activist seeking redemption after the untimely death of her father. She reflects on the journey that took her from a young piano prodigy destined for a life in the service of the church, to a renowned jazz vocalist at the forefront of the Civil Rights Movement. Direct from sell-out performances in Shanghai, New York and at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, Apphia Campbell returns to Greenwich Theatre following the acclaimed WOKE earlier this year.
