Straight to Audience Productions presents
Take Me Back
By Angie Le Mar
Saturday 3rd – Sunday 4th November
Take Me Back tells the story of two young girls, Patricia and Andrea, whose friendship was formed and forged whilst attending church with their mothers, but whose life experiences led them down different, separate and painful paths, only for them to return to the church and faith of their childhood.  Amidst the two women’s journeys, they experience love, laughter, pain, disappointment and abuse.  Take Me Back pays homage to the music and worship styles of the Windrush Generation, those people who migrated to the UK from the Caribbean in the 1950s and 60s as well as recounts a story of faith, reconciliation and forgiveness.  Angie believes Take Me Back has captured an authentic aspect of Black Life in Britain which she hopes audiences will continue to warm to: “The country is celebrating the 70th anniversary of the arrival of the Windrush this year.  Now is as good a time as any for audiences to experience a slice of black life that sustained the African Caribbean communities.”
