Immensely popular in the late 18th and early 19th centuries, this pot-boiler tells a tale that Shakespeare audiences will recognize - a general and his new bride manipulated to tragic ends – but in the context of Spain’s conquests in North Africa. In this tale the revenger is the Moor-- Zanga, an enslaved prince--who wreaks righteous vengeance on his oppressor. The fiery Zanga, a favorite role of both Ira Aldridge and Edmund Kean, finally gets his return to the spotlight.

This reading is presented in partnership with the Mellon Foundation sponsored “On Decolonizing Theatre” Seminar at Northwestern University, and the R/18 Collective.
