Mlima's Tale

Share this page:
Our journey begins when Mlima, one of the last great tusker elephants in Kenya, is killed by poachers. Caught in the clandestine international ivory market, Mlima travels across the world, forced along a trail of greed and desire as old as the trade itself; trapped between memory and fear, history and tradition, want and need. From two time Pulitzer Prize-winner Lynn Nottage (Sweat, Ruined), comes a mystical, lyrical ballad that gives voice to the objects we consume, the lives we exploit, and the planet we put at risk.

“We often forget that we co-exist on this planet with other creatures who have beautiful stories that go largely untold. Mlima’s Tale is an attempt to give voice to a magnificent Elephant, one of the last great tuskers in Kenya, whose life is cut short by poachers. I am very excited that Marin Theatre Company is sharing this mystical tale that drives home the consequences of poaching and the exploitation of wildlife on our planet.”
