Following exuberant audience and critical response to its premiere at the Tricycle in August 2013, Tiata Fahodzi tours Denton Chikura’s play The Epic Adventure of Nhamo the Manyika Warrior and His Sexy Wife Chipo throughout May and June, in association with Watford Palace Theatre. Turning African storytelling and theatrical decorum on their heads, the Zimbabwean comedy was described as ‘a delight from start to finish’ (Financial Times), ‘undeniably good fun’ (Evening Standard) and ‘a total joy’ (WhatsOnStage.com). The fast-paced action opens as a desperate narrator tries to create the ultimate African fable but finds he is missing a hero – until dashing goatherd Nhamo appears on the horizon and is pulled into a whirlwind adventure.
