The Mantle publisher based in New York, has announced a publishing contract with renowned playwright and actor Donald Molosi.

For the first time in Botswana’s history, drama moves from the stage to print. The forthcoming volume We Are All Blue (ISBN 978-0-9965770-4-5) consists of two of Molosi’s original, award-winning plays, Blue, Black and White (BBW) and Motswana: Africa, Dream Again.

Former Botswana president, Sir Ketumile Masire is contributing a foreword to this unique volume.

Blue, Black and White (2011), the longest running one-man show in Botswana’s history, was the first-ever Botswana play staged off-Broadway in New York City, where Molosi won a best actor award.


BBW is about the country’s first democratically-elected president, Sir Seretse Khama, and his interracial, transformative marriage.

Winner of several awards, the play has been performed around the world.

Motswana: Africa, Dream Again (2012) is the story of Botswana and its people as they transition from a British colony to an independent state.

The play premiered off-Broadway in 2012 where it won an award at the United Solo Festival, the world’s largest solo theatre festival.

Written, directed, and performed by Molosi, the play has been performed across the U.S. and is on tour in Botswana and South Africa.

ebook and print versions of Motswana and BBW- published individually- will also be made available.
