The Moors

the-moors

Tara Theatre, 356 Garratt Ln, London SW18 4ES

Two Gents Productions and Tara Arts presents a new play: The Moors by Tonderai Munyevu

Two men arrive in London looking for Shakespeare. They say they are from Balaika, Africa. They have passed through fire to be here and now they are determined for the great man to hear their stories. They quickly discover that he is gone but a prominent director swoops them up and places them on stage in front of an expectant audience at Shakespeare’s Globe.

Fame, fortune and two smitten actresses await. But can they survive the hostile environment?

In triumphantly energetic ‘Township’ style, two actors play men, women and immigration police to portray this story of love, friendship, and ambition. A vibrant and engaging theatre experience not to be missed.

Written by Tonderai Munyevu Performed by Sibusiso Mamba and Tonderai Munyevu Directed and produced by Arne Pohlmeier

 

This new production is supported by Arts Council England
