Breakfast with Mugabe Thriller Play

Breakfast with Mugabe

Breakfast With Mugabe, Fraser Grace’s award-winning thriller, is inspired by accounts that Zimbabwe’s President Robert Mugabe, severely depressed, sought treatment from a white psychiatrist. It is a suspenseful and suddenly violent play that highlights issues of our time: the tension between modern ideas and ancient beliefs, the question of whether those who were colonized can live with their former subjugators, and how a man who was oppressed becomes an oppressor. As we watch citizens of countries around the world struggle under dictatorships, this play resonates strongly.

The Alice Griffin Jewel Box Theatre at The Pershing Square Signature Center 480 West 42nd Street August 7 through October 6, 2013

Breakfast With Mugabe was originally produced by the Royal Shakespeare Company in 2005. Directed by Sir Anthony Sher, the production transferred to the West End in 2006 and won the highly prestigious John Whiting Award that year. It has gripped audiences in subsequent productions. Now New York theatergoers will be able to experience a play that the Times of London called “riveting!”
