Just an Ordinary Lawyer – A play, with songs. Written and performed by Tayo Aluko
Just an Ordinary Lawyer
Monday 6th March 2023 – 5.30pm - Rose Theatre
This event is for Edge Hill University staff and students.
Nigerian Tunji Sowande quietly breaks through multiple barriers to become Britain’s first Black judge in 1978. Also a fine concert singer and keen cricket lover, he muses on international politics and history as they affect the Black world from Africa to the USA and Britain, from the point of view of one who would rather watch sports, and spread love and peace through the medium of song.
Recalling heroic sporting achievements alongside epoch-defining political events, Tayo Aluko delivers “a brilliantly put together history lesson delivered as art.”
Seating is allocated on first come first served basis.
