About Mogadishu

★★★★★ 'The play of the year? Quite possibly' - Daily Telegraph
★★★★ ‘A striking vision’ -  Evening Standard
★★★★ ‘Dunster’s thrillingly tense, dazzlingly well-acted production.’ - Metro
★★★★ ‘Franzmann’s play is a cracker. It’s sad, funny and beautifully constructed, with the tightening grip of a thriller.’ - Financial Times
★★★★ Whats On Stage
★★★★ Spoonfed

'I’m going to give you one more chance to tell the truth. So think very carefully about what you say...'

When white secondary school teacher Amanda is pushed to the ground by black student Jason, she’s reluctant to report him as she knows exclusion could condemn him to a future as troubled as his past.

But Jason can protect himself and with a story of his own he drags Amanda into a vortex of lies in which victim becomes perpetrator and where the truth is somewhere between public and private, black and white.

Vivienne Franzmann's bold new play MOGADISHU recently won the Bruntwood Playwriting Competition and The George Devine Award 2010.
