'Something strange happens when the past comes crashing into you, right in the present.'

In the spring of 1980, the British colony of Rhodesia became the independent nation of Zimbabwe. Tonderai Munyevu, a born-free, was part of the hopeful next generation from a new country with a new leader, Robert Gabriel Mugabe. While exploring Tonderai's personal story and his relationship with his father, Mugabe, My Dad and Me charts the rise and fall of one of the most controversial politicians of the 20th century. Interweaving monologue and original music on the mbira with commentary inspired by some of Mugabe's more notorious speeches, this captivating one-man show is a blistering dance of memory exploring connection, familial love and what it means to return 'home'.

The play was shortlisted for the Alfred Fagon Award 2019.

The play was directed for Audible Originals by John R. Wilkinson, recipient of the Genesis Future Directors Award 2018.

The stage production of Mugabe, My Dad & Me is a York Theatre Royal and English Touring Theatre co-production in association with Alison Holder.
