Inspired by accounts that Zimbabwe’s despotic President, Robert Mugabe, sought treatment from a white psychiatrist, Breakfast with Mugabe is a suspenseful, suddenly violent play that highlights issues of our time.
“Trenchant, magnificently acted… In Mr. Grace’s capable hands, Mugabe rightfully deserves a seat alongside Macbeth, Richard III and other tragic, power-siphoning Shakespearean antiheroes.” New York Times (Critic’s Pick)
"Fraser Grace’s taut meditation on guilt and power...an excellent cast, directed with forceful simplicity by David Shookhoff...tough-minded and unsentimental, gazing squarely at the postcolonial puzzle of modern-day Africa." Time Out New York (Critic’s Pick)
