Mufaro's Beautiful Daughters performance at NLL

Lubuto library users just performed a play they have been rehearsing for 6 weeks. Today’s play was based on the popular picture book, Mufaro’s Beautiful Daughters. Inspired, some in the audience went into the Reading Room afterwards and started reading the book. They said they liked the story of the play. One of the actors said he enjoyed expressing himself through drama. In this picture, a scene from the early part of the play: A King, seeking a new wife, and his guards.
