black futures, old hopes
In a country fighting for independence, a white man is trapped in a black family’s house without their knowledge. As time passes, strange sounds and a stubborn stench fill the house. The family wonders if they are living with ghosts, but something more sinister is at play.
This debut play, from playwright-to-watch Tinashe Jakwa, is a fresh and exciting exploration of how to overcome the past. The show journeys into the joys and pains of navigating racial divisions in a biting and humorous way.
With a fresh spin on telling stories about difficult moments in history and presented by APK Productions, the show is for everyone who wants to build a better future.
Content warnings: the show has mentions of violence, coarse language, war, sexual assault, and death.
This production of rebirth is proudly supported by Healthway, promoting the Drug Aware message and Propel Youth Arts.
