ROOTFTOP Promotions, producers of Theatre in the Park, will on Wednesday 20 April, host Silvanos Mudzvova’s one man play “Missing Diamonds”, “I need my share”.
Davis Guzha, director of Rooftop Promotions, confirmed this to NewZimbabwe.com.
In a statement Tuesday, Vhitori Entertainment, producers of the play, said they had been overwhelmed by public requests for the play to be staged locally before it goes to Europe.
“The play has already received two international invitations before it even premiers,” said Mudzvova.
“We have been invited to show case the play at Bergen Afro Arts Festival, 16th – 18th of June 2016 in Bergen, Norway; so this Wednesday’s performance at Theatre in the Park is the only chance the Zimbabwe traditional theatre audience have before it goes international,” Vhitori productions said.
The play caricatures the missing $15 billion diamond revenue which President Robert Mugabe recently lamented.
In the play, Mudzvova asks critical questions which expose government’s unwillingness to deal with corruption.
“He is asking critical questions to Government, Chinese Embassy, Mbada Diamonds where my share is? Where is the share of the poverty stricken, dust laden, and hunger ravaged rural Zimbabweans?
