Four stars from The Stage: “Tightly focused verbatim drama”
I am making my London theatre debut, playing Heycock, an undergraduate Cambridge student in Debate: Baldwin vs Buckley, at the Stone Nest Theatre. We will be running from 15th March to 8th April. The director is the award winning Christopher McElroen, who directed the US performances before bringing it to the UK.
The piece is a staging of a real debate at the Cambridge Union in 1965 between the civil rights activist James Baldwin and American conservative William Buckley. It covers the question “Is the American dream at the expense of the American negro?”. It was a ground-breaking debate, and I am thrilled to be involved in bringing its sadly-still-relevant message back into view.
Tickets are available here, so check it out and see you there!
