She is Rhodesia is the story of a daughter who, in an effort to escape her husband’s recent affair, arrives from Zimbabwe to visit family and friends at her father’s house at 20 Madeley Road in west London. Her pain is cushioned by her efforts to hand craft items from java print fabric. While in London she seeks to interest an online company that sells third world crafts in her creations. Her arrival forces memories of her father’s affair with a woman many years ago. The identity of this woman, Robert Mugabe’s first wife Sally, puts all the women in the play under pressure, as the long-dead Sally “speaks” from all corners of the house at Madeley Road, the actual site of her exile in London from 1967 to 1973.
