May Sumbwanyambe’s new play Enough of Him leads the way in the 2023 Critics’ Awards for Theatre in Scotland with six nominations.

“To keep that part of me silent. That is what is unbearable. That is why I must be free.”

Based on a true story, Enough of Him explores the life of Joseph Knight, an African man enslaved by plantation owner Sir John Wedderburn and brought to Scotland to serve in his Perthshire mansion.

The awards will be presented at an event at Edinburgh’s Traverse Theatre on June 11.
