This is Stanley Makuwe, a playwright from Zimbabwe based in Auckland. I'm the writer/director of Finding Temeraire, a play set in a small mining town in Zimbabwe, and featuring a highly talented cast of African actors, Tawanda Manyimo and Sandra Zvenyika.
Though the African community in New Zealand remains small, we do have a very strong sense of belonging to this nation and its cultural diversity. We are proud to share our culture and stories through song and theatre.
After a successful season at Mangere Arts Centre last June, we have been offered a great opportunity to be a part of The Basement Theatre's Spring Season, and your support will go a long way to see this dream through. We are looking for $2000 to go towards payment to our cast. We look forward to a great spring!
