The Last Queen of Scotland
By Jaimini Jethwa, directed by Jemima Levick
A Stellar Quines production, commissioned and supported by the National Theatre of Scotland and Dundee Rep.
1972, Idi Amin ordered the expulsion of Ugandan-Asians under a 90-day deadline. From Uganda to Dundee, a woman grows up knowing nothing about her homeland haunted by Amin’s impact on her destiny. Returning to Uganda years later she confronts his ghost.
This is one story from a community in exile that sheds light on a unique period of untold history.
Performed to a live soundtrack [Patricia Panther, Glasgow Girls] through the street sounds of Dundonian dialect as a homage to Jaimini’s city “the D”.
