Molosi’s play opens in Canada to international critical Acclaim

Molosi’s play opens in Canada to international critical Acclaim
INTERNATIONAL AWARD WINNER: Molosi

Donald Molosi’s award-winning off-Broadway play opened in Canada this week to critical international acclaim.

The play dubbed Motswana: Africa, Dream Again, is also expected to headline the World Play 2020 series.

It was also selected for the Canadian film festival by an academy of theatre and writing experts.

In the play Molosi tells the story of a young nation that is still struggling with accommodating its own ethnic and tribal diversity.

“For the first time in my plays I am engaging with Botswana of today where tribalism is on the rise and a culture of corruption appears to be custom. Are we in a post-Botho time? I speak directly to the average Motswana and I ask for national reflection,” Molosi shared.

The play was first performed off-Broadway in New York City in 2011 and Botswana in 2017.

In 2017 it was published by The Mantle Books in New York City and the same year it began to be taught in several American universities.

“The time has come to look at the past fifty years of this Republic through sober eyes free of myth. That is the only way we can do better. Otherwise we will continue to be that country that harbors dreams for a knowledge-based economy while we have zero appreciable critical knowledge of ourselves. That is the essence of decolonization,” Molosi said.
