06/01/2016: Joburg Theatre presents Woza Albert
06 January 2016
A play by Percy Mtwa, Mbongeni Ngema and Barney Simon, presented by arrangement with DALRO (Pty) Limited.

The satirical eighties play Woza Albert! is still a relevant story today. A schools set work in the South African GDE school curriculum. Woza Albert! is presented for the education and the development of new audiences, the theatre piece is a great tool for audience development while assisting schools with their school curriculum.

The play portrays so much truth and clarifies a simple approach to the human condition, therefore makes it relevant to South Africa. Mncedisi Shabangu and Hamilton Dhlamini play the roles of various black South Africans - a vendor, barber, domestic worker, manual labourer and soldier - receiving the news that Christ (Morena) has arrived in South Africa, where a Calvinist white elite imposes apartheid.

The two theatre veterans make it easy for an audience to relate in the new South Africa, where people are desperate for a better life despite their political freedom. The parts played by Mncedisi and Hamilton show off their skills in acting, mime, singing and dance. They also create images using a few words and actions.

The play concerns people waiting for a Morena, a Christ or saviour, to come and save them from their plight. Set in Apartheid South Africa in the 70s, the actors perform with a rich humour in spite of the hardships the characters go through.
