Breakfast With Mugabe the play in New York

“…TRENCHANT, MAGNIFICENTLY ACTED… In Mr. Grace’s capable hands, Mugabe rightfully deserves a seat alongside Macbeth, Richard III and other tragic, power-siphoning Shakespearean antiheroes ...Michael Rogers' performance builds from slow burn to full-on conflagration.”

NewYork Times Critics Pick

"Fraser Grace’s taut meditation on guilt and power...an excellent cast... directed with forceful simplicity by David Shookhoff...
tough-minded and unsentimental, gazing squarely at the postcolonial puzzle of modern-day Africa."

TimeOut NY Critics Pick

“Rogers hauntingly captures Africa’s longest-serving president
...the effect is truly terrifying.”
