42 years apart, two women join in the struggle for civil rights.
Set against a powerful soundtrack of original music, gospel and blues, Woke travels to the 1970s and Black Panther Assata Shakur, then to present-day Ferguson in 2014 and college student Ambrosia.
Both challenge the American justice system, become criminalised through political activism, and ultimately are faced with the same choice: stay and fight, or flee?
Woke won the coveted Scotsman Fringe First Award for its premiere season, and was highly commended by the judges of the Amnesty Freedom of Expression Award.
