My Voice Was Heard But It Was Ignored

My Voice Was Heard But It Was Ignored 15 year-old Reece is roughly accosted by the police outside M&S. His young, Black teacher Gillian witnesses it all - but she doesn’t question or intervene in the disturbing scene that plays out.

As the hard and wet gravel embosses Reece’s face and the policeman’s knee digs into his back, his teacher stands frozen, with fears for her own safety engulfing her mind.

The consequences of her lack of action erupt the following day. Gillian finds herself locked in a classroom with her angry student. With no clear intent, Reece refuses to relinquish the key. He wants her to feel the irreversible breakdown of trust. He wants her to pay - and to know his pain.

A gripping tussle of power and an urgent interrogation of racial identity, written by emerging playwright Nana-Kofi Kufuor and directed by Dermot Daly.
