Margo Melcon, from Marin Theatre will be at the Library talking about the new American play, "The Convert," which will be staged at the Marin Theatre Company from Feb. 19th - March 15th, 2015.
The play is set in Southern Africa in 1896. A young Shona girl, against her family’s wishes, escapes a forced marriage arrangement by converting to Christianity and becoming servant and student to an African evangelist. However, as anti-European sentiments rise among her people, she must face an impossible choice – between colonial and ancestral ways of life. The Convert marks the Bay Area debut of award-winning Zimbabwean-American playwright Danai Gurira. She may be best known for her role in the AMC TV series, "The Walking Dead," but her plays have earned her “a reputation for hard-hitting drama” (Variety) and the Village Voice’s 2006 Obie Award for play writing.
