Guy and Kathleen grow their crops, raise their daughter, and pay their taxes. But Africa is changing, country by country. White farmers in Zimbabwe must now answer for history’s crimes. When Charles arrives with a smile and a purchase order, there’s more than just land at stake. With violence threatening to erupt, he will do whatever it takes to restore their farm to the ‘native’ population.
As truths are revealed and moralities questioned, are things ever more than simply black and white?
Inspired by real events in Zimbabwe, BBC Scriptroom winner May Sumbwanyambe‘s debut play is an unflinching examination of land ownership, dispossession and justice in a postcolonial world.
Starring Stefan Adegbola (The Christians, Gate Theatre), Sandra Duncan (King John, RSC), Peter Guinness (The Crucible, Manchester Royal Exchange) and Beatriz Romilly (A Midsummer Night’s Dream, The Globe).
