MLIMA’S TALE at The Public Theater
March 27 – May 20, 2018
Written by Lynn Nottage
Directed by Jo Bonney
Featuring Ito Aghayere, Jojo Gonzalez, Kevin Mambo, and Sahr Ngaujah
Two-time Pulitzer Prize winner Lynn Nottage returns to The Public with a new drama as moving and incisive as her Broadway debut playSweat, heralded by The New York Times as a “vital contribution to contemporary drama. ”Taking us on a journey that starts in a game park in Kenya and goes around the world, MLIMA'S TALE is the story of Mlima, a magnificent elephant trapped in the clandestine international ivory market. Following a trail of greed and desire as old as trade itself, Mlima leads us through memory and fear, history and tradition, and want and need.
Obie Award winner Jo Bonney (Father Comes Home from the Wars) directs this poignant new play that reveals the surprising and complicated deals that connect us all.
Generous support for MLIMA'S TALE provided by an Edgerton Foundation New Play Award and Susan & David Edelstein.
