Ablaze 2019: The love and politics of a shared heritage

Ablaze is back and this year we’re exploring some new ideas!!!!

Set primarily in Addis Ababa, the play follows two teams as they negotiate a political and economic deal between the African Union and the Caribbean Community. Against this backdrop, we meet Thembi and Daniel and sparks from their university days are rekindled. What initially starts off as a happy reunion and the possibility of a bright future is gradually complicated by conflicting interests and a fear of the unknown. Will our love birds be able to face their fears and will both regions agree on a deal?

Join us for a night of drama, dance, music and fashion that celebrates the shared heritage of Africa and the Caribbean!!!
