Surnames, Stockings and Stick-Fighting Warriors
Flatfoot Trybe, otherwise known as Phil Okwedy (words) & Mikey Price (music) perform their new show, Surnames, Stockings and Stick-Fighting Warriors: Persecution, terror, slaughter and slavery are melded together in a set of stories that chart the journey from forced exile to resolute return, and that ultimately celebrate the triumph of the human spirit over tyranny. Strange then, that the key to it all should be a name – and that the name should be found in a Cumbrian police station in the late 1930’s…
