Available to watch from 22 Mar 2021 12:00 until 21 Apr 2021 12:00
In March, we will be producing an online performance of "The Black Hermit" by Ngũgĩ wa Thiong'o
"The story of a young man, Remi, who is the first of his tribe to attend university. Amidst the backdrop of a politically torn country, Remi himself is torn between his sense of tribalism and nationalism. This struggle runs deep, as he finds it at the heart of his afflictions between himself, his marriage and familial relations, and his greater sense of obligations to his people and the country. The overwhelming nature of these problems drives him into isolation as a black hermit."
