Hackney Windrush Day Celebrations 2021
Hear an audio drama from members of the Hackney Caribbean Elderly Organisation.
We joined in the Hackney’s Windrush Day Celebrations 2021 by collaborating with Immediate Theatre and director, Justin Marosa. Working from the original collection of letters, we adapted and produced material for the radio play.
Mercy’s story (how far we have travelled) was originally told through a collection of letters to relatives, documenting milestones such as her longing to come to England, life in Hackney, family relationships through to her retirement. In her later years she became an active member of HCEO where she found lasting friendships and improvement in quality of life.
