Workshoping Election Day

As most friends and followers of this blog know, I had originally intended this blog to be solely a poetry blog, but careful consideration of my poetry output, and the time gap between posts, has made me change my mind. I am now going to make this a general blog, a space where I let all my creative juices flow. And for a start, I have posted a pciture from the Harare International Festival Of The Arts 2010 - Direct workshop of my play ELECTION DAY, which I am proud to say is going to open in this year's HIFA. In the picture are two actors (apologies I have forgotten their names) and Eunice Tava in the white cape, whos is going to direct the play. I am happy also that a woman is going to direct this play. Previously all my plays have been directed by men, and I know from the workshop that having Eunice is going to introduce a new perspective to the vision. As most of you already know, the play ELECTION DAY is an adaption of my much published short story of the same name. Much has changed in the play, but the main story line remains still the same (vote rigging). I will keep you posted on the play, the perfomance dates, the actors etc.
