The world premiere of Malindadzimu is at Hampstead Theatre.

For Faith and her teenage daughter Hope, it seems as though growing up inevitably means growing apart. So Faith makes the drastic decision to move the family back to her native Zimbabwe to start over. It’s home for her but not for Hope – at least, not on the surface... Will the powers that have drawn them back to their roots help them find each other - and themselves?

Mufaro Makubika’s new play - delicate, witty and epic in equal measure - travels from Nottingham to Zimbabwe to explore a mother and daughter’s search for belonging, their struggle with a multicultural heritage, and a haunting history that cannot be ignored.
