“We must make it possible for every individual to lead the good life, to win a place in the sun. We are in danger of becoming a race of fear-ridden neurotics — we who live in the finest country on Earth.”

Ex-pat Kiwi Sir Garfield Todd, Prime Minister of Rhodesia during 1953-1958, was criticised for being too vocal in his support for equal rights in Zimbabwe and labelled ‘Black Lover’ by his detractors.

Confined to his home under house arrest, with the civil war raging close by, Todd and his family’s servant Steady confront the uncertainties of their precarious lives.

This gripping two-hander by Auckland Theatre Company is being performed as part of Auckland Arts Festival and stars Cameron Rhodes and Simbarashe Matshe.

In association with Auckland Arts Festival.

By arrangement with Playmarket.

Starring: Cameron Rhodes, Simbarashe Matshe

Direction: Roy Ward

Design: Rachael Walker, Sean Lynch
