JACK presents an early workshop version of this new play set in the famous Hotel Harare, in the middle of the capital city of Zimbabwe, written by Daaimah Mubashshir, featuring Shyko Ali. Hotel Harare infuses physical theatre and music into a slightly-absurdist narrative in which Minana Maniyaka, the daughter of a wealthy family, suddenly forces the family into new and dangerous territory, putting everything for which theyve worked at risk.
February 12 - 13 at 8 pm.
