“That Uganda Play” is an epic story that moves from America to Africa and back again, imagining the ghosts of war, political corruption and personal betrayal that might lie behind recent anti-gay legislation in the nation of Uganda. This world premiere by Atlanta playwright Theroun Patterson — someone to keep your eyes on — is a co-winner of the 2014 Essential Theatre Playwriting Award. Essential Theatre, a summertime staple in Atlanta, spotlights new plays in its annual festival and readings series. See “That Uganda Play” at the West End Performing Arts Center. Note: It contains adult themes. For more on the Essential festival, see this ENCORE FEATURE.
