Award-winning playwright Stanley Makuwe brings us a gripping drama about war, politics and colonialism.

“We must make it possible for every individual to lead the good life, to win a place in the sun.” - Sir Garfield Todd

Expat New Zealander Sir Garfield Todd said these words in his final speech as Prime Minister of Rhodesia in Protected content . Ousted from politics for being a “black lover”, Todd’s ongoing fight for racial equality led to his house arrest in Protected content , the starting point for Makuwe’s story.

Compelling and reflective, Black Lover explores the courage to stand against injustice in a nation experiencing deep racial divides.
