JT Rogers’ gripping thriller focuses on an American family in Rwanda, immediately prior to the 1994 genocide. As Jack searches for his mysteriously disappeared friend, his wife becomes close to a powerful politician and his teenage son finds escape – and danger – in Kigali’s nightclubs. A hit at the National Theatre and on tour.
