Sizwe Bansi is Dead
Tickets and Information
WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
SIZWE BANSI IS DEAD, was written in the late 60s as a response to the seemingly implacable regime of apartheid. The production is as searing, relevant and uplifting today, as it was thirty years ago. It tells a deceptively simple story of a Black South African who lacks the necessary "endorsements" in his pass book. He struggles with the restrictions and laws which relegate him to exile and penury in the land of his ancestors. The play was devised by its two original actors, John Kani and Winston Ntshona, in collaboration with Athol Fugard. It incorporates their stories, language, and triumphant vigor of spirit into a theatre event of intense, intimate and spell-binding revelation.-ess
