Featuring Brian Bose, Katie Bradley, Joy Dolo, Clay Man Soo and Will Sturdivant

This enthralling play by Lynn Nottage, the Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright of Ruined and Sweat, centers on the ivory trade, following the tusks and spirit of the magnificent elephant Mlima, from his home in Kenya through Vietnam and then China. Nottage tells the fascinating story in a daringly original way, asking us to reflect on the collective consequences of human action.
