The Right To Remain - The Life and Mind of Tupac Shakur

The Right To Remain - The Life and Mind of Tupac Shakur, written and directed by and starring Meshuan Labrone is at The Tara Theatre, Earlsfield, from 01 Nov - 05 Nov 2011.

The Right To Remain is an exploration of one of the world's most compelling yet misunderstood musicians of rap and hip-hop. This is a theatre production that seeks to address the question of who the world's greatest rap artist really was, not only to his public but to himself. Locked alone in solitary confinement with nothing but his thoughts, his words, his angels and demons, Tupac has time to reflect on the defining moment that sent his world spinning out of control and into a chaotic projectory toward certain self-destruction.

Tupac Amaru Shakur known by his stage names 2Pac (or simply Pac) and Makaveli, was an American rapper. He has sold 75 million albums to date. Shakur was also a promising actor and a social activist. Most of Shakur's songs are about growing up amid violence and hardship in ghettos, racism and problems in society. On the night of September 7, 1996, Shakur was shot four times in a drive-by shooting in the Las Vegas metropolitan area in Nevada, and died 6 days later.
