Breakfast With Mugabe, Fraser Grace's award-winning thriller, opens on August 17th, at The Alice Griffin Jewel Box Theatre, at the Pershing Square Signature Center for a limited run through October 6th. Inspired by accounts that Zimbabwe's President Robert Mugabe, severely depressed, sought treatment from a white psychiatrist, is a suspenseful, suddenly violent play that highlights the 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. 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!"
