Bishop Arts Theatre Center presents Mlima's Tale
Bishop Arts Theatre Center presents Profile Theatre’s production of Mlima’s Tale as a virtual event. Two-time Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Lynn Nottage tells the provocative story of Mlima, a majestic elephant trapped in the clandestine international ivory market. Beginning in a game park in Kenya and traveling around the world to a billionaire’s penthouse in the West, the play tracks the trajectory of Mlima’s tusks through real-life consequences of animal poaching. Mlima’s phantom follows close behind marking everyone involved as complicit in his demise.
The production, directed by Reginald L. Douglas, will be available to stream at any time, April 12-May 8.
