Our Lady of Kibeho
About Our Lady of Kibeho
In 1981 at Kibeho College in Rwanda, three young girls claimed to have seen a vision of the Virgin Mary who warned them of the unimaginable: Rwanda becoming hell on Earth.
Inspired by the extraordinary events that captured the world’s attention, this vibrantly theatrical meditation on faith, doubt and miracles was hailed ‘the most important play of the year’ by The Wall Street Journal when it premiered in New York in 2014. This is the latest work from Olivier Award-winning writer Katori Hall, whose previous plays include Tina: The Tina Turner Musical and The Mountaintop.
Marking 25 years since the Rwandan genocide, this striking drama now has its London premiere at Stratford East in a remount of Royal & Derngate’s critically acclaimed production, directed by James Dacre.
