Manhattan Theatre Club (Lynne Meadow, Artistic Director and Chris Jennings, Executive Director) is pleased to present Dakar 2000, written by Rajiv Joseph (Bengal Tiger at the Baghdad Zoo, King James at MTC), directed by May Adrales (Vietgone and Poor Yella Rednecks at MTC).

In Senegal on the eve of Y2K, an idealistic Peace Corps volunteer survives a mysterious car accident. An imposing State Department operative arrives at his hospital where she immediately takes command of the situation and his safety. Though they couldn’t be more different, they form an unlikely relationship. But when it becomes clear that they both have secrets, the volunteer is roped into a darker side of public service–one he can’t come back from. Unpredictable at every turn, this world-premiere thriller was commissioned by Manhattan Theatre Club. 

Casting, creative team, and other listings information for Dakar 2000 will be announced at a later date.
