THE LYNCHING: A PLAY WRITTEN & PERFORMED BY JACKIE WALKER

18th Jan 2018 Performance Start Time 7pm ,
Friends Meeting House Main Hall, 6 Mount Street, behind Central Library, Manchester, Greater Manchester, M2 5NS

Suspended from the Labour Party and vilified with fake accusations of antisemitism, Jackie Walker tells the story of her extraordinary activist parents and her own struggles fighting  racism in the UK.  How did a black,  lifelong anti-racist and supporter of Jeremy Corbyn end up suspended from the Labour Party?

The Lynching is a theatrical performance, a ‘one woman’ show based on the history of black struggle. The play touches on her experiences as a black Jewish woman in the Labour Party and the struggle to bring the Palestinian narrative into the mainstream in the fight for Palestinian rights.

There will be a Q&A discussion session after the performance.

“… a great night. Jackie possesses a lovely singing voice and the honed acting skills of a veteran performer … very funny and frank about her own bolshy nature”  

Alexei Sayle The Guardian  19 Nov 2017

“Jackie’s play is not a diatribe … but a very skilfully crafted work of art … that forces the audience to draw their own conclusions about racism, oppression, witch-hunts and over-zealous social workers .”

Suzanne Gannon  Labour Briefing 4 Nov 2017
