Following the hugely acclaimed run at the Tricycle Theatre in August 2013, Denton Chikura’s debut play undertook a short tour in May and June 2014.

Nhamo, a dashing young goatherd, stumbles upon a mysterious Narrator who has just hours to complete his masterpiece: the ultimate African tv drama. All that’s missing is a hero and Nhamo fits the bill – if he can defeat his arch nemesis, woo the girl of his dreams, appeal to audiences the world over and learn his lines. By midnight.

Denton Chikura’s madcap farce turns storytelling on its head in a Zimbabwean comedy of epic… epicness!
