Acclaimed playwright Roy Williams brought together 14 writers to respond artistically to George Floyd’s murder and the Black Lives Matter Movement. From this came 846 – a collection of short pieces. Each is a standalone exploration of racial inequality and oppression, but together they form a powerful tapestry of voices.
846 is directed by Ola Ince and features a soundscape by Donato Wharton. Please note that 846 contains very strong language and discusses themes some may find sensitive or upsetting.
