Play tells Maphosa’s story

The Rain That Washes is a new Chickenshed production that chronicles the epic and traumatic personal story of an ordinary man from Zimbabwe.

One man cries, sweats and laughs several characters as he tells his personal story behind the recent history and headlines.

Following the dream of majority rule, one man sees Ian Smith's Rhodesia become Robert Mugabe's Zimbabwe. From refugee camps in Botswana to air strikes in Zambia via Marxism in Bulgaria, he returns to Zimbabwe, only to witness the greatest betrayal of all.

Writer/Director David Carey has dramatized elements of Christopher Maphosa’s story using some of his poetic phrases, endless research and elements of his fascinating conversation with Christopher, who has laid his life bare for this project. – For more details: [email protected]
