What is Mlima's Tale about?

Milma the Mountain casts a shadow over the ivory trade market, haunting the corrupt gamekeepers and law officials who allowed and profited from his barbaric murder. Killed for his striking tusks, Mlima’s spirit follows their journey as they are passed from nefarious bureaucrats and traders to ship captains and artists, all eager to exploit his magnificent tusks for commercial gain. This striking play beautifully tells the tale of one of humans’ ugliest acts and is a personal tragedy with universal implications.
