Myth Busted: It’s not only Black Audiences that want to see Black work

UK research by Black-led British theatre Eclipse has blown away any lingering assumptions that Black artists do not attract a mainstream audience. A recent three-month tour of Black Men Walking, a play created through a three-year project with 16 Black writers, sold out 71 of its 84 performances, with 428 or 512 respondents rating the show as four or five starts. And only 21.4% of the audience identified as Black.

The report, beautifully illustrated by Cressida Djambov, is well worth a read.
