UHURU is a haunting new play by Gloria Majule. Uhuru tells the story of Mshale, a Mount Kilimanjaro tour guide in Tanzania, who dreams of marrying a white woman and moving to the West. Sprite hates white people and sets out to decolonize what he deems “his mountain,” while Henry and Frannie are white missionaries who claim to be Tanzanian. As the four journey up to the roof of Africa, the looming ghost of colonialism dictates who gets to reach the peak, and who gets left behind. Come see this haunting tale, developed with the author and Stockton students as part of the Creative Project Development Lab at Stockton Theatre.
