Director, actor and playwright Gbolahan Obisesan confronts colonial white privilege in a showdown between a producer and a performer in this short film.

Re: Exhibit is part of Tools for Change: digital reimaginings of three plays from the Theatre Uncut archive that explore racism, censorship, power and identity.

Tools For Change was created to offer creative material to encourage debate, galvanize action and raise debate on racism and injustice. The playtexts of all three plays are available on Theatre Uncut's website for anyone anywhere to download free of charge and perform themselves until 28th November 2020.

Originally commissioned as part of Walking the Tightrope: the Tension Between Art and Politics co-produced by Offstage Theatre and Theatre Uncut in 2014 in response to the protests against the production Exhibit B that opened in the UK at the Edinburgh International Festival and closed during its presentation at the Barbican in London. With thanks to Theatre Peckham and Cressida Brown.

The Traverse is funded by Creative Scotland and The City of Edinburgh Council, with additional support from The Scottish Government Performing Arts Venues Relief Fund.

With thanks for the generous support of Joanna Kennedy.
