★★★★ 'A rich and gripping drama' Financial Times

Black Panther star and Tony-nominated writer Danai Gurira’s striking play explores the impact of colonialism and Catholicism on black identity. 

It’s 1896 and Jekesai, a young woman fleeing forced marriage, finds herself working for a devout Catholic.  Chilford dreams of being an English priest and relishes the opportunity to mould his new convert.  But Jekesai’s salvation has its price as her individuality is slowly stripped away…

'An extraordinarily ambitious play – intense, harrowing and compelling' LA Times
