About Mugabe, My Dad and Me

A co-production by English Touring Theatre, Brixton House & York Theatre Royal in association with Alison Holder

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

April 1980. The British colony of Rhodesia becomes the independent nation of Zimbabwe. A born free, Tonderai Munyevu is part of the hopeful next generation from a country with a new leader, Robert Mugabe.

Mugabe, My Dad & Me charts the rise and fall of one of the most controversial politicians of the 20th century through the personal story of Tonderai’s family.
