Boi Boi is Dead is written by Zodwa Nyoni, a Leeds-based playwright, poet

and performer. It’s set in Bulawayo and tells the story of the family left
behind following the death of Boi Boi, a ‘legendary’ Afro-jazz trumpeter.

Performances start at West Yorkshire Playhouse in Leeds 14 February and
continue until 7 March. Here is the link:’s-on/2015/boi-boi-is-dead/
