Roll Over Atlantic
by John Agard

Poet John Agard's mischievous one man show directed by Mark C. Hewitt begins an extended tour in October 2016 with dates in Brighton, Lewes, Cheltenham Literature Festival and London's Southbank Centre. A mercurial revisiting of the notorious voyages of Christopher Columbus that mixes the tides of cabaret and calypso with irreverent satirical wit. A Crosspath Theatre production.
