“A gutsy, heartfelt & richly complex portrait” - Chicago Tribune

"Beautifully performed and staged with a deft hand… it builds through well-plotted twists to a genuinely potent climax."


“The cast is superb from top to bottom, and the tension builds beautifully to gut-wrenching proportions..."

 
Southern Africa. 1896. Against her family’s wishes, a young Shona girl escapes a forced marriage arrangement by converting to Christianity and becoming servant and student to an African evangelist. However, as anti-European sentiments rise among her people, she must face an impossible choice – between colonial and ancestral ways of life.
 
“An impressive new work by an impressive young playwright” (The Philadelphia Inquirer), The Convert marks the Bay Area debut of award-winning Zimbabwean-American playwright Danai Gurira. She may be best known for her role in the AMC TV series The Walking Dead, but her plays have earned her “a reputation for hard-hitting drama” (Variety) and the Village Voice’s 2006 Obie Award for playwriting.
