Great Escape

Leaading Zimbabwean playwright Andrew Whaley's satire set in his homeland in 2005, and written in response to the Mugabe government's Operation Murambatsvina, in which thousands of illegally built dwellings were demolished, making thousands homeless.

Two disenfranchised men desperately try to tunnel their way from Zimbabwe to freedom in the promised land of South Africa.

But even with the help of their bizarre machine Son of the Soil - constructed with the remnants of the country's constitution - their task proves harder than they imagined.
