There’s a ghost on the Ivory Highway. It follows the tusk of an elephant across thousands of miles, over land and sea, and feels each hand it touches along the way. Who is culpable in this underground global market? Can we learn from Mlima’s Tale?  And will we care?

Mlima’s Tale is directed by Burning Coal’s associate artistic director Ana Radulescu, who most recently directed Caryl Churchill’s What If If Only (U.S. Premiere) and Air (World Premiere) at Burning Coal.
