Video Preview: A SEASON IN THE CONGO


A Season in the Congo chronicles the rise and fall of Patrice Lumumba, the first Prime Minister of the newly independent Republic of Congo, in the year 1960. Aimé Césaire (1913-2008), a writer and politician known as the “poet leader that lit the fire of Africa” explores themes of racism, betrayal and decolonization in this seminal piece of political theatre. Now, on the 100th anniversary of Césaire’s birth, director Rico Speight brings his work to a new audience.
