Ancient and legendary African elephant, Mlima, is struck down and his massive tusks stolen as trophies. His ghost is ever-present as the tusks change hands many times and travel the world from Kenya, to Vietnam, to Beijing. Set against the backdrop of the black market ivory trade, and written by two-time Pulitzer Prize-winner, Lynn Nottage (Sweat; Ruined)Mlima’s Tale explores complex questions of global consumerism, ancestral history, and human greed. Tiana Kaye Blair directs, in her STT debut.
