Raising Lazarus

Written & performed by Kat Francois
Directed by Dawn Reid

Poetry slam champion Kat Francois is a regular performer on BBC Radio and London’s poetry scene. She brings her critically acclaimed one-woman play following sell out performances at The Roundhouse.

Raising Lazarus tells the true story of Francois’ relative Private Lazarus Francois from Grenada, who joined the British West Indies Regiment in 1915 to fight for Britain in the First World War.

Charting this young soldier’s journey from the Caribbean first to the Sussex coast, then on to Egypt and East Africa, Francois shines a light on the thousands of West Indian soldiers who volunteered for King and Empire.
