This is the story of the greatest Black Briton to have ever been forgotten.

ABC Merriman-Labor is an African satirist on a mission. His dreams of becoming the greatest writer of his generation lead him on a death-defying journey to the very heart of empire: London. Here, he will discover if he and his dreams can survive the brutality of imperial ‘justice’.

Labor’s dazzling writings on his experiences in the imperial capital subvert the colonial gaze with razor sharp wit – but when details of his intimate friendship with John Roberts spark rumours back in Freetown, he is faced with an impossible choice: exposure or oblivion.

Featuring a kaleidoscope of characters, ‘Five Years With The White Man’ is the radical debut play of the late historian Alfred Sesay, performed with additional material by his partner Dumebi Okafor.
