Award-winning playwright Stanley Makuwe brings us a gripping drama about war, politics and colonialism.
“We must make it possible for every individual to lead a good life, to win a place in the sun.” - Sir Garfield Todd
Expat New Zealander Sir Garfield Todd said these words in his final speech as Prime Minister of Rhodesia in 1958. Ousted from politics for being a “black lover”, Todd’s ongoing fight for racial equality led to his house arrest in 1965, the starting point for Award-winning playwright Stanley Makuwe’s story.
Compelling and reflective, Black Lover explores the courage to stand against injustice in a nation experiencing deep racial divides.
