    Seen it:
    Dutchman celebrates the individuality of black men, which is often ignored or moulded into something more palatable - by black and white communities alike.
    - James Scotland, Theatre-maker

    Revolving around two characters: Lula, a white woman, and Clay, a black man, Dutchman lands right at the intersectionality of race, gender and class to present an explosive exploration of white privilege, masculinity, power and sexuality. The parallels between the Civil Rights Movement of the 60s and the Black Lives Matter movement of the present force the audience to look inward and ask what, if anything, has changed? Amiri Baraka, the playwright, is celebrated both for his civil rights activism and as a revolutionary provocateur of African-American poetry; significantly affecting the course of American literature.
