“Hilarious, harrowing and acutely moving… [An] essential, coruscating work”The Stage, UK

A thought-provoking quest to move beyond the cycle of hatred
A Rwandan boy’s bittersweet coming-of-age tale

The genocide in Rwanda in the 1990s shocked the world. At the time, actor-playwright Ery Nzaramba was 15 years old and his “survivor” identity has now become a life-long companion. Indeed, how can and should Nzaramba, born in Belgium of Hutu and Tutsi descent, respond to questions as to who he is and where he comes from? In this autobiographical one-man show, performed to acclaim at the 2016 Edinburgh Festival Fringe, the charismatic Nzaramba journeys back to his Rwandan childhood. With the help of a cassette player, he conjures up family, friends, and other people he encountered, taking on a variety of roles in a candid search to comprehend both himself and the country’s story as a whole. Moving perspicaciously between the humorous and the heart-wrenching, the poignant drama highlights not only the everyday intolerance that lays the groundwork for mass slaughter but also how power and privilege play an inordinate part in survival.

Nzaramba trained as an actor at the Conservatoire Royal de Bruxelles in Belgium and Birmingham School of Acting in the UK. He was lauded for his performances in recent world tours of Battlefield and The Suit, both directed by Peter Brook and Marie-Hélène Estienne, and has received two grants from Arts Council England to develop his own play.
