Award-winning playwright Stanley Makuwe brings us a gripping drama about war, politics and colonialism in Black Lover, the story of expat New Zealander Sir Garfield Todd, who was ousted as Prime Minister of Rhodesia in 1958 for being a “black lover”. Because the play is rich in dialogue, audio description is not necessary.

“We must make it possible for every individual to lead the good life, to win a place in the sun.” Sir Garfield Todd said these words in his final speech as Prime Minister of Rhodesia in 1958. Todd’s ongoing fight for racial equality led to his house arrest in 1965, the starting point for Makuwe’s story.

Compelling and reflective, Black Lover explores the courage to stand against injustice in a nation experiencing deep racial divides.Book tickets by emailing boxoffice@atc.co.nz or by calling 0800 282 849. No performances Mondays and Tuesdays.
