Malawian Theater Troupe Talks Slick About Madonna
Little mercy is shown for Madonna in stage parody… by a Malawian cast
A musical parody about Madonna’s controversial adoption of Malawian orphan Mercy James is being performed at the Edinburgh Fringe this month by a Malawian cast.
The 50-year-old Material Girl, who is portrayed in the play Mercy Madonna Of Malawi by a black male actor in a blonde wig, is routinely mocked and her back catalogue of hits takes a beating.
Madonna is first glimpsed breaking wind in bed with adopted Malawian son David Banda, whom she later uses as a step to climb on to the stage.
