May N'Kame, the mother of an African dictator, travels to England to see Dr. Cora Gage about medical treatment for her failing eyesight. Dr. Gage uses the consultation as an opportunity to raise the issue of the imprisonment of some of her colleagues. Meanwhile, May N'Kame's true motive in visiting the doctor is to obtain a poison with which to kill her murderous son. GOING TO ST. IVES is the story of two impressive women brought together by that which is personal and divided by that which is political as both seek to accomplish the greatest good.
"Spectacular…emotionally and intellectually engrossing…dazzling…" —Philadelphia City Paper. "A dialectic between black and white, between civilization and savagery, between established order and chaos…Blessing's script beautifully interlaces superb writing with captivating character development." —Citybeat.com.
