Mufaro Makubika’s new play

Review this show


For Faith and her teenage daughter Hope, it seems as though growing up inevitably means growing apart. So Faith makes the drastic decision to move the family back to her native Zimbabwe to start over. It’s home for her but not for Hope – at least, not on the surface... Will the powers that have drawn them back to their roots help them find each other - and themselves?

Mufaro Makubika’s new play, delicate, witty and epic in equal measure - travels from Nottingham to Zimbabwe to explore a mother and daughter’s search for belonging, their struggle with a multicultural heritage, and a haunting history that cannot be ignored.

Malindadzimu is Makubika’s second play following his critically acclaimed Shebeen (Nottingham Playhouse/Theatre Royal Stratford East), which won the 2017 Alfred Fagon Award for Best New Play. Monique Touko makes her professional directing debut.

In the event of Malindadzimu being postponed, you can choose between a full refund or credit to be used for any show at Hampstead.
