Details:

Griffin, a black American volunteer arrives from New York City to help build a village school and escape his church’s probing into his sexuality.  But when he falls into a complicated relationship with a group of destitute, orphaned teenagers, he becomes obsessed with a mission that will change his and their lives forever.  From the beautiful rolling hills of the Ugandan countryside to a stifling apartment in New York City, from a joyous celebration of African youth to a terrifying abduction 8000 miles away, Witness Uganda documents the story of a man battling to find his place in a world full of injustice and inhumanity and explores the question “is changing the world even possible?”

Review:

Phenomenal production, magnificent performances, and exquisite storyline headline the workshop performance of Witness Uganda. It is a moving and uplifting play that will progress and develop to touch even more lives than it’s 3 performances have so far. With the love of many Broadway giants in the room, Witness Uganda was a phenomenal fête.
