Woza Albert is back at The Soweto Theatre

Woza Albert! written by Percy Mtwa, Mbongeni Ngema and Barney Simon, is back for a limited run at The Soweto Theatre.

Starring Hamilton Dlamini and Thulani Mtsweni, also directed by Hamilton Dlamini, Woza Albert remains one of the most vibrant examples of satirical anti-apartheid South African Theatre.

Woza Albert! is a great theatre piece and is also great tool for audience development while assisting schools with their school curriculum. In terms of the synopsis, the dialogue carries much truth and clarifies a simple approach to the human condition, therefore making it relevant to South Africa.

The play is considered to be a work of political satire that imagines the second coming of Christ in apartheid-era. South Africa. The production uses the metaphor of Morena (Jesus) to show what would happen if he came back to South Africa during apartheid. Would he like what he saw?

Please note that no under 14’s are allowed to attend the production.
