About this show

The fortunes and misfortunes of a South African township after the "miracle" of the new democracy of 1994 are at the center of Itsoseng, which chronicles how the promise of a fresh start led to a generation's disappointment. The multi-talented writer/performer Omphile Molusi tells the story of a young man's devotion to the girl he loves amidst a changing political climate. The actor deftly portrays multiple characters, moving from comedy to tragedy in an intense, emotionally demanding performance that captures the reality of post-apartheid South Africa.
