This is a short play set in the present, but explores recent history from the 1950's onwards. In his one man play, Victor explores African Caribbean migration, and themes of hope, identity and change. The storyline of Streets Paved With Gold weaves together a thrilling and informative picture of the collective experiences of Black British citizens resulting from their new surroundings. The performance is about Augustus Cleveland Johnson who came to Britain from Barbados with a plan to return 'home' five years later.
