Rwanda Research

This month I'm making a journey to Rwanda for a few weeks of theatrical research. I'm studying a wedding dress rental business in the town of Kibungo, sponsored by the Anglican Church in Rwanda, in hopes of writing a new play about it. The shop rents used wedding dresses - most donated by American church-goers - and has become a hub in a new micro-economy that includes cleaners, tailors, and delivery people. All focused on the growing popularity of weddings in Rwanda these days. I want to find out more.
