After Independence by May Sumbwanyambe


Out Of Stock

Guy and Kathleen grow their crops, raise their daughter, and pay their taxes – but one day a man from the government arrives to persuade them to sell up and go. Behind his smile, there’s the growing threat of violence. He do will whatever it takes to right past wrongs, and return the land to the ‘native’ people. Inspired by real events in Zimbabwe, May Sumbwanyambe’s debut play is an unflinching examination of land ownership, dispossession and justice in a postcolonial world. It was The Times Critics’ Choice and was adapted for BBC Radio 4.
