The Dark and Light Theatre Company, later called the Black Theatre of Brixton, was founded by Frank Cousins in the early 1970s. By the time it folded, in 1977 it had produced Jon Henrick's Evolution of The Blues; Shiman Wincalbert's Kataki; Amiri Baraka's The Slave; Richard Crone's The Tenant; Robert Lamb's RAAS; Manley Young's Anancy and Bre'r Englishman; T-Bone Wilson's Jumbie Street and Jamal Ali's Twisted Knot. The Black Theatre of Brixton had produced more black plays in two years than the whole of English theatre had in the previous twenty-five.
