Fraser Grace’s thriller "Breakfast With Mugabe" premiered at the Royal Shakespeare Company’s Other Place in 2005. Directed by Sir Anthony Sher, the production transferred to the West End in 2006.
Fraser Grace's dramtic telling of the interwined tragedies of Robert Mugabe, the once promising leader, and his country, Zimbabwe, formerly considered the "bread basket of Africa," puts into clear focus questions that are very much of our time. In an evocative way that is uniquely theatrical, he tells a story that is both particular and universal, and leads us to a nuanced understanding of the awesome responsibility that is power.
Now, New York theatergoers will be able to experience a play that the Times of London called “riveting.”
To present "Breakfast With Mugabe" Off-Broadway, we estimate it will cost $90,000. We’re actively seeking donations to raise that money, and since this effort has begun we've raised nearly $60,000.
This is where you come in.
I would be deeply grateful if you would make a tax deductible contribution and support our effort financially. Here are some suggested levels, but any amount is welcome.
$50 (Brick and Mortar)
$500 (Vaulted Arch)
There’s a lot of theater in New York. However, there is nothing like "Breakfast With Mugabe." We can change that.
With deep thanks, and appreciation for your support, I am sincerely yours,
