The Convert

Venue: 
Gate Theatre
Location: 
Fringe

From Tony Award-nominated playwright Danai Gurira, The Convert is a compelling exploration of a pivotal moment in history, when resisting the invading Western culture could mean death.

The Convert Synopsis: 

It’s 1896 in Rhodesia and Jekesai has just been given her new, Catholic name. Chilford, the only black Roman Catholic teacher in the region, has decided she’ll now be known as Ester, wear European clothing and speak only in English. She’s torn away from everything that she knows by her fellow African, who earnestly believes the promises of the White man.
