MAIJA OF CHAGGALAND: (Multi Award Winning Production)

Set in Kilimanjaro Tanzania, in early 50s to late 80s, Maija of Chaggaland covers many unirversal issues that govern the human condition. It’s the story of a remarkable woman’s (MAIJA)fight for love, life, freedom and success for herself and her family against all odds.
The play depicts four female archetypes: The young maiden, the powerful teacher/warrior, the wise and loving mother and the crone. These significant representations appear in all female cultures, and we see shadows of them in many of our own myths.
