Young playwright Danai Gurira first made waves with “Eclipsed,” her play about 5 young Liberian women during that country’s civil war. She is now writing a cycle of plays about Zimbabwe and Zimbabwean identity.  Part one, “The Convert,” premieres at the McCarter Theatre January 13th to February 12th. It starts at the beginning, during the first black/white conflict in 1895, with the story of Jekesai (aka Ester), a young village girl who escapes a forced marriage by embracing Christianity. Susan Wallner talks to Gurira about the play and about her own experience as a “ZimAmerican.”
