University of Nebraska at Lincoln lecturer, Sarah Imes Borden, wants to shed light on this revolutionary piece of art while exposing the underlying social issues. Along with playwright Beau Hopkins, Producer Dawn Marie Moe and Fight Director Ian Borden, Sarah will be introducing this very important work to audiences in the US through a series of staged readings. The readings will have a fundraising premiere in Lincoln, NE and then be performed in several venues along the East Coast this March. The readings in March will feature a performance by one of the original Ugandan cast members and talkbalks held by playwright Beau Hopkins.
This staged readings will feature a talk back to discuss this revolutionary piece of art and the underlying social issues with the playwright Beau Hopkins. One of the original actors in the play, Okuyo Prince was supposed to be here to be part of our cast but his travel to the U.S. to appear in the staged readings has been denied by the Ugandan government.
