WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

This season, multi-Pulitzer Prize winner Lynn Nottage returns to the Public Theater with a new drama as moving and incisive as her Broadway debut play, Sweat. Taking audiences on a journey that starts in a game park in Kenya and goes around the world, Mlima's Tale is the story of Mlima, a magnificent elephant trapped in the clandestine international ivory market. Following a trail of greed and desire as old as trade itself, Mlima leads viewers through memory and fear, history and tradition, and want and need. Obie Award winner Jo Bonney directs this poignant play that reveals the surprising and complicated deals that connect us all.
