VENUE: DRAMA THEATRE
DATE: 9 - 28 JUNE 2015
Written By John Kani
Directed by Janice Honeyman
Starring John Kani, Susan Danford, Buhle Ngaba & Apollo Ntshoko
This is Tony-award-winning Kani's first full-length play since his Nothing But the Truth in 2002, which received numerous accolades locally and abroad. Once again he teams up with theatre bluebloods Janice Honeyman (director) and Mannie Manim (lighting designer) to bring to life this new South African love story and political thriller.
The cast features Kani as Robert Khalipa, Susan Danford as his Swedish wife, Anna Ohlson, and newcomer Buhle Ngaba as their daughter, Ayanda, a medical student. Apollo Ntshoko plays Peter Tshabalala, a young comrade and Robert's assistant in the ANC office in Stockholm. Robert has been living in exile in Stockholm for over 30 years with his wife (who has inherited her father's large electronic and communications company) and their daughter Ayanda, who was born there. They are a happy family but this is all about to change…
