INTERVIEW: LUCIAN MSAMATI
The actor, director and writer chats to Carole Woddis about his role in Bruce Norris’s Clybourne Park (Wyndhams), a satirical drama about race in Chicago which has just transferred to the West End from the Royal Court. He also talks about theatre in Zimbabwe, where he grew up, and his role as artistic director of Tiata Fahodzi.
I think that the quality of Bruce Norris’s writing is exceptional, and that its subject matter is very relevant to modern Britain.
