When Americans Jim and Jane arrive in the South African bush for a private safari with Ranger Bobby and a mystical tracker named Tshonga, things aren't quite what they seem. The local birds advise them to "G'waaay!" Jim wants to experience the real Africa, but can they handle it when the true ruler of the land emerges to defend his territory?

Emily Solomon is a Master of Fine Arts candidate in the playwriting program in Catholic University's drama department. The play will be directed by local favorite Joe Banno.
Tickets: $12 full price, $8 for senior citizens and CUA alumni/staff, and $5 for students.
