Almost a year ago, I reported on Chiwetel Ejiofor's return to the stage this summer to play Congolese nationalist hero Patrice Lumumba, in poet and political activist Aimé Césaire's play A Season in the Congo, at the Young Vic in London. The new stage production was directed by Joe Wright, who helmed the films Pride & Prejudice, Atonement, Hanna, and Tolstoy's Anna Karenina.
