This award-winning off-Broadway play, particularly relevant given Robert Mugabe's re-election this past July, features Ezra Barnes '84 as producer and principle cast member. Inspired by accounts that Zimbabwe's President Robert Mugabe, severely depressed, sought treatment from a white psychiatrist, Fraser Grace's Breakfast With Mugabe is a suspenseful, suddenly violent play that highlights issues of our time.

"...TRENCHANT, MAGNIFICENTLY ACTED... In Mr. Grace's capable hands, Mugabe rightfully deserves a seat alongside Macbeth, Richard III and other tragic, power-siphoning Shakespearean antiheroes...an unwinking power struggle." - New York Times
"Fraser Grace's taut meditation on guilt and power...an excellent cast...directed with forceful simplicity by David Shookhoff... tough-minded and unsentimental, gazing squarely at the postcolonial puzzle of modern-day Africa. - Time Out NY
