WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
"Whilst the Americans are trying to get to the moon, we are trying to get to the village." Julius Nyerere (First President of Tanzania). Chasing the Moon is a collection of stories and personal memories, based on interviews, reflecting on the prospect of diasporans' return to Zimbabwe. The play diarizes the writer's yearning to return home in the wake of the 2008 elections. This panoply of voices gives a taste of Zimbabwe's diverse global citizens, searching for their identities, their place in the world, and their paths home.
