“A satire played with devastating energy in a brilliantly witty staging”
– Guardian

If you have any love of theatre, or faith in its power to move, then please, please don’t miss it”
– City Limits

South African theatre giants Mbongeni Ngema and Percy Mtwa reprise their original roles, which they created four decades ago, in one of the most brilliant classics, Woza Albert!, at the Baxter Theatre. This internationally acclaimed play, directed by Christopher John, is set to make local theatre history with this revival. At the height of apartheid, the two actors asked a simple question, “what would happen if Christ returned to present-day South Africa?” Ngema and Mtwa developed the stage play with renowned theatre-maker, Barney Simon. It went on to become a world-wide phenomenon and a celebrated example of hard-hitting political satire, touring the world during the late 1970s & ‘80s

We will not be dwelling on glorifying King Cetswayo’s exploits but demonstrating how ‘unity of purpose’ has achieved what experts would have called impossible, as Africans bared it all and showed preparedness to lay down their lives in defence of their land,” explains Khoza.

Kwaito music is inescapable in this Mzansi. It is ours. A creation that was and continues to be authored by the Black Lived Experience, and it engages Black Life. In Kwaito, we have a national treasure. A monument to the Township, and to Black Life.
