From the producers: Taking us on a journey that starts in a game park in Kenya and goes around the world, "Mlima's Tale" is the story of Mlima, a magnificent elephant trapped in the clandestine international ivory market. Following a trail of greed and desire as old as trade itself, Mlima leads us through memory and fear, history and tradition, and want and need.

Audience Notes: This production contains strobe effects and herbal cigarettes.
