Eclipse Theatre has announced the cast and UK-wide tour dates for the world premiere of 'Black Men Walking', the first work to be staged as part of the company's ground-breaking 'Revolution Mix' movement which will deliver the largest ever national programme of Black British stories produced and performed in UK theatres.

An Eclipse Theatre and Royal Exchange Theatre co-production, 'Black Men Walking', will premiere on January 18th, 2018 at the Royal Exchange Theatre in Manchester.

Inspired by a real-life Black men's walking group based in Sheffield, the piece has been conceived by Eclipse in collaboration with Leeds-based rapper, singer, producer and performer Testament.
