Molosi divides his time between Botswana and the United states
For the first time in Botswana’s history, drama moves from the stage to print. We Are All Blue consists of two award-wining plays by Donald Molosi: Blue, Black and White and Motswana: Africa, Dream Again. Quett Masire, Botswana’s second president, contributes the foreword to this unique volume.
Blue, Black and White (2011), the longest running one-man show in Botswana’s history, was the first ever Botswana play staged off-Broadway in New York city, where Molosi won a best actor award. BBW is about the country’s first democratically-elected president, Sir Seretse Khama, and his interracial, transformative marriage. Winner of several awards, the play has been performed around the world.
Motswana: Africa, Dream Again is the story of Botswana and its people as they transition from a British colony to an independent state. The play premiered off-Broadway in 2012 where it won an award at the united solo festival, the world’s largest solo theatre festival. Written, directed and performed by Molosi, the play has been performed in several countries, including Botswana, South Africa, and the U.S.
