WATCH NOW

An African country teeters on the edge of civil war. A society prepares to drive out its colonial present and claim an independent future. Tshembe, returned home from England for his father’s funeral, finds himself in the eye of the storm.

Yaël Farber (Mies Julie, Nirbhaya) directs the final play by Lorraine Hansberry (A Raisin in the Sun): a brave, illuminating and powerful work that confronts the hope and tragedy of revolution.

This play is about imperialism, racism, and colonialism and contains some scenes of racially motivated violence, that some people may find distressing.

This archive recording was captured by the National Theatre in 2016.
