The Moors play

November 7, 2018 @ 8:00 am - November 24, 2018 @ 5:00 pm

The Moors

Two Africans looking for Shakespeare. A moving comedy by Two Gents Productions & Tara Arts

Wed 7 to Sat 24 November 7.30pm, Matinees Thurs 15 & 22 Nov 2pm, Sat 17 & 24 Nov 3pm

Two migrants both alike in dignity

in his city where we lay our dreams.

Two spirited men arrive in London looking for Shakespeare. They say they are from Balaika, Africa. They have passed through fire to be here and are determined for the great man to hear their stories.

Alas, Shakespeare is dead! However, his theatre still stands. Soon they find themselves swept up and placed on stage in front of an expectant audience. Fame, fortune, and two smitten actresses await. But, can they survive the hostile environment?

In triumphantly energetic style, two actors play men, women and immigration police to portray this funny yet moving story of love, friendship, and ambition. A vibrant and utterly engaging theatre experience not to be missed.

Written by Tonderai Munyevu
Directed and Produced by Arne Pohlmeier
