Woza Albert!

Back by popular demand, Woza Albert! – written by Percy Mtwa, Mbongeni Ngema and Barney Simon – is on at the Joburg Theatre in Johannesburg from 1 to 17 June 2018.

This 1980s production remains one of the most exciting examples of satirical anti-apartheid theatre, and reimagines the second coming of Christ happening in apartheid South Africa. It features a number of characters in South Africa at the beginning of the 1980s, and attacks the pass laws that prevented black people from moving freely around the country at the time.

It stars Segomotso Modise and Hamilton Dlamini playing the roles of various black South Africans – a vendor, barber, domestic worker, manual labourer and soldier – receiving the news that Christ has arrived in South Africa.

Find out what happens after that when the curtain goes up. Ticket prices range between R70 and R120.
