Bringing Mlima’s Tale to life.

Welcome to the newest iteration of our Concept to Curtain series! We’ve assembled a few members of the creative team from our award-winning 2019 production of Mlima’s Tale to talk about what it was like bringing this stunning show to the Playhouse stage.

This is the second episode in our new virtual series Concept to Curtain — a behind-the-scenes look at the creative process of putting a show on stage.

ABOUT THE SHOW

Mlima’s Tale is a powerful, theatrical fable about a magnificent and beloved Kenyan elephant named Mlima, hunted for his coveted ivory tusks. As traffickers maneuver the illicit ivory market, the animal’s invincible spirit follows their path of desire, greed, crime, and corruption.

Our 2019 production was the first professional staging of the play since its 2018 world premiere at The Public Theater in New York City.

That’s some of Lynn Nottage’s brilliance… she sort of creates a world in which we all have to depend on each other.
