Lara Foot’s multi award-winning play comes to Joburg Theatre!
Written and directed by Lara Foot and based on a devastating true story, the multi award-winning production Tshepang: The Third Testament comes to The Fringe at Joburg Theatre from 16 to 28 October, starring the original cast. Drawing on a South African style of story-telling, combining striking visual imagery with magic realism, Mncedisi Shabangu reprises his role as Simon and Nonceba Constance Didi plays Ruth in this haunting and uplifting story of redemption.
Shabangu, renowned for his unique style of physical theatre, received the 2003 Fleur du Cap Best Actor award for his performance, while the simplicity and symbolism of Gerhard Marx’s designs create an evocative backdrop for Foot’s critically-acclaimed work.
Tshepang has won numerous awards, including the Critics Circle Award in Montreal and the Best New South African Play and Best Actor at the Fleur du Cap Awards in SA. It has toured Germany and Switzerland, as well as playing in New York, Edinburgh, London, Brisbane, Stockholm and Amsterdam. Published in English and Zulu, it has been performed in prisons and rural settlements throughout SA.
Joburg Theatre offers a range of affordable ticket options for Tshepang, including R40 tickets for the first preview, 11:00 schools performances when all seats are R70 and evening performances at just R150.
