A political satire set in an imaginary African nation - a story of love and madness, greed and hatred, paranoia and fantasy all wrapped in African superstition.

With actors Francois Byamana (Rwanda) Devona Brown (Zimbabawe), Solomon Nyamazana (Zimbabwe) George Mubayiwa (Zimbabwe) Julia Hyde (New Zealand).

Writer Stanley Makuwe is one of a new breed of modern day upcoming Zimbabwean writers.

His first book, Under This Tree and Other stories, was published in New Zealand in 2005 and was voted book of the week on New Zealand's radio, NewsTalk ZB.

His first play, The Dead Shall Rise Again, made it to the Highly Commended List in the BBC International Playwriting competition 2007.

In the same year, his other play, Overthrown, produced and directed by Cont Mhlanga, was banned by the Zimbabwean government.

Stanley was also a runner-up in the BBC African Performance short story competition in 2005 with his sci-fi short story, Life in a Morgue.
