ALTER EGO PRESENTS THE LEOPARD AND THE FOX — THE NEW PLAY BY RAJIV JOSEPH & DIRECTED BY GIOVANNA SARDELLI ABOUT THE LAST DAYS OF PAKISTAN’S PRIME MINISTER ZULFIQAR ALI BHUTTO
AND HIS DAUGHTER, EXILED PRIME MINISTER BENAZIR BHUTTO, TODAY

[NEW YORK] Alter Ego presents The Leopard and The Fox, Rajiv Joseph’s timely political drama about the last days of Pakistan’s first popularly elected prime minister, Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto, at TBG Theater, October 17 – November 3. Giovanna Sardelli directs.

Inspired by Tariq Ali’s BBC screenplay, The Leopard and The Fox portrays the charismatic Zulfikar Ali Bhutto as he is overthrown in a coup by his army chief, General Zia ul-Haq, in the late 1970s. Joseph updates this story of betrayal and broken promises to include Bhutto’s daughter in 2007, former prime minister Benazir Bhutto, as she negotiates with current president Pervez Musharraf to end her self-exile and attempt to share power.

In current headlines, Benazir Bhutto has vowed to return to Pakistan on October 18, one day after The Leopard and The Fox opens.
