Description


Continuing in her tradition of crafting thought-provoking, socially-conscious dramas, Lynn Nottage's latest offering tells the story of Mlima, a majestic elephant struck down by poachers for his tusks. Beginning in a game park in Kenya and traveling around the world to a billionaire's penthouse in the West, the play tracks the trajectory of Mlima's tusks through the ivory trade market while Mlima's phantom follows close behind--marking all those involved as complicit in his death. Inspired by the real-life consequences of animal poaching, Mlima's Tale is a piercing story of human cruelty born of greed and wavering values.
