Black Lover by Stanley Makuwe.

Award-winning playwright Stanley Makuwe brings us a gripping drama about war, politics and colonialism.

“We must make it possible for every individual to lead the good life, to win a place in the sun.” - Sir Garfield Todd

Expat New Zealander Sir Garfield Todd said these words in his final speech as Prime Minister of Rhodesia in 1958. Ousted from politics for being a “black lover”, Todd’s ongoing fight for racial equality led to his house arrest in 1965, the starting point for Makuwe’s story.

Compelling and reflective, Black Lover explores the courage to stand against injustice in a nation experiencing deep racial divides.

Black Lover was proudly developed with the support of Auckland Theatre Company.
