About the Show/Event

The Convert
Information for The Convert at The Young Vic, West End (Play). Western cultural impositions and Ancient African traditions make strange bedfellows. Never sleeping with both eyes shut for fear the other will strike. It's 1896 in Rhodesia and Jekesai has just been given her new, Catholic name. Chilford, the only black Roman Catholic teacher in the region, has decided she'll now be known as Ester, wear European clothing and speak only in English. She's torn away from everything that she knows by her fellow African who earnestly believes the promises of the White man.
Performers Letitia Wright (Jekesai/Ester), Paapa Essiedu (Chilford), Ivanno Jeremiah (Chancellor), Jude Akuwudike (Uncle), Rudolphe Mdlongwa (Tamba), Pam Nomvete (Mai Tamba).
Author Danai Gurira. Producer Young Vic. Director Ola Ince.
