Tonderai Munyevu

Published by Methuen

Two migrants both alike in dignity in this city where we lay our dreams

Two men arrive in London looking for Shakespeare

They say they are from Balaika, Africa

They have passed through fire to be here and are determined for the great man to hear their stories

Alas, they learn Shakespeare is dead!

However, his theatre still stands

Soon they find themselves swept up and placed on stage in front of an expectant audience

Fame, fortune and love awaits ...

But can they survive the increasingly hostile environment?

In triumphantly energetic Southern African style, two actors play men, women and immigration police to portray this funny yet moving story of love, friendship, and ambition.

Published in Methuen Drama's Plays For Young People series, this edition features resources for teachers and students, including an introduction by Sonia Massai, Professor of Shakespeare Studies at Kings College London, and a contextual response to the play in production by the author

CAST: 2 Actors, any gender
