The Moors

  • Tara Arts 356 Garratt Lane London, England, SW18 4ES United Kingdom (map)

The Moors is a moving comedy written by Zimbabwean national Tonderai Munyevu about two men arriving in London looking for Shakespeare, produced by Two Gents Productions with Tara Arts. It runs from Wednesday 7th to Saturday 24th November, 7:30pm. Matinees Thursday 15th and 22nd November, 2pm, Saturday 17th and 24th November 3pm.

Two spirited men arrive in London looking for Shakespeare. They say they are from Balaika, Africa. They have passed through fire to be here and are determined for the great man to hear their stories.

Alas, Shakespeare is dead! However, his theatre still stands. Soon they find themselves swept up and placed on stage in front of an expectant audience. Fame, fortune, and two smitten actresses await. But, can they survive the hostile environment?

In triumphantly energetic style, two actors (last seen together in Sizwe Banzi is Dead at the Young Vic) play men, women and immigration police to portray this funny yet moving story of love, friendship, and ambition. A vibrant and utterly engaging theatre experience not to be missed.

Written by Tonderai Munyevu
