About this show

The death of an estranged brother forces aging librarian Sipho Makaya, along with his daughter and the niece he has never met, to confront the betrayals, jealousies and animosities of the past, both political and personal. Exploring the relationship between those who remained in South Africa to lead the struggle against apartheid and those who returned victoriously after living in exile, Nothing but the Truth explores the destruction of a man's aspirations at the very moment when democracy promises their realisation; examining family secrets, sibling rivalry, exile, memory and reconciliation. Written by and starring John Kani. "a deeply felt portrait that delicately weaves the extraordinary and the ordinary in its characters' lives" -- The New York Times Added Performance: Wednesday, 21 February at 2:30pm
