About the show:
Salvation comes at an unholy price when colonialism threatens a Southern African boomtown. It’s 1895 when the convert, a teenager named Jekesai, is thrust into strange new circumstances that pit Ancient African traditions against Western culture and Christianity. When conflict erupts, she must follow her heart and make the ultimate sacrifice.
With an urgent voice, both heartrending and humorous, Obie Award-winner Danai Gurira (In the Continuum and Eclipsed) brings yet another faraway world to the Douglas to enlighten, enrage and ultimately edify audiences.
“Gurira is earning a reputation for hard-hitting drama.” — Variety
The Convert is a co-production with McCarter Theatre Center (Princeton, NJ) and The Goodman Theatre (Chicago).
