black roses

In the early hours of Saturday 11 August 2007, 21-year-old Sophie Lancaster and her boyfriend Robert Maltby were attacked. As a result of her severe head injuries Sophie never regained consciousness.

Black Roses is an elegy for Sophie, in which poet Simon Armitage gives her back her voice and the local cast reflect on what lessons can be learned and how even today, hate crimes come in many forms.

A powerful story about the killing of Sophie Lancaster, performed by local young people and produced by professional award-winning local theatre company Bunbury Banter.

"Something in their lives despises ours. The difference between us is what they can't stand."
