More information about Mlima's Tale

This season, two-time Pulitzer Prize winner Lynn Nottage returns to The Public with a new drama as moving and incisive as her Broadway debut play "Sweat", heralded by The New York Times as a "vital contribution to contemporary drama."

Taking us on a journey that starts in a game park in Kenya and goes around the world, "Mlima's Tale" is the story of Mlima, a magnificent elephant trapped in the clandestine international ivory market. Following a trail of greed and desire as old as trade itself, Mlima leads us through memory and fear, history and tradition, and want and need.

Obie Award winner Jo Bonney ("Father Comes Home from the Wars") directs this poignant new play that reveals the surprising and complicated deals that connect us all.

The complete cast features features Ito Aghayere ("Junk"), Jojo Gonzalez ("Richard III"), Kevin Mambo ("The Fortress of Solitude"), and Sahr Ngaujah ("Fela!").
