I Am The Dead Man: A Mozambican Fable
Monday, June 1 and Tuesday, June 2
Saudade Theatre presents I Am the Dead Man: A Mozambican Fable, the first stage adaptation of acclaimed writer Mia Couto’s novel Under the Frangipani. Set in post-colonial Mozambique, we meet a police inspector who is brought in to investigate a strange murder inside of a former Portuguese fort where ivory and slaves were once sold. Inside he faces the dead, clashes with life, copes with ever shifting reality, and finds the truth nearly impossible to reveal. I Am the Dead Man is a whodunnit infused with magical realism that explores the spirit world and unpacks the intersection of old traditions and new knowledge. There is a message to the old colonial masters: “You will never rule this land.”
Running Time: 90 minutes with possible intermission
