'Danai Gurira's rich and gripping drama' Financial Times
'A skilful look at the turbulence of colonialism' Evening Standard
Black Panther star and Tony-nominated writer Danai Gurira’s striking play explores if faith has a cost and if so, when is that cost too much?
It’s 1896 in what is modern day Zimbabwe and Jekesai, a young woman fleeing forced marriage finds herself working for devout Catholic priest, Chilford. He relishes the opportunity to mould his new convert but Jekesai’s salvation has a price.
Cast includes Letitia Wright (Black Panther), Paapa Essiedu (RSC Hamlet) and Ivanno Jeremiah (Humans) directed by Ola Ince.
