The Convert

£10 - £40

Black Panther star and Tony-nominated writer Danai Gurira's striking play explores if faith has a cost and if so, when that cost is too much.

It’s 1896 in what is modern day Zimbabwe and Jekesai, a young woman fleeing forced marriage finds herself working for devout Catholic priest, Chilford. He relishes the opportunity to mould his new convert but Jekesai's salvation has a price.
