The Convert

OBIE Award-winning playwright Danai Gurira (Eclipsed, In The Continuum) returns to Woolly with her rich, unflinching, and compassionate new play.

Set in 1895 amid the colonial scramble for Southern Africa, the play follows Jekesai, a young girl who escapes village life and a forced marriage arrangement, ultimately discovering Christianity under the guidance of an African teacher.

However, as anti-colonial sentiments rise to a boiling point, Jekesai must choose between her new European God and the spirits of her ancestors.

“Intense and deeply affecting” (Chicago Tribune), The Convert examines complex cultural and religious collisions that shaped the post-colonial world, the reverberations of which are still felt in Zimbabwe today.
