Devised by Athol Fugard, John Kani & Winston Ntshona

Directed by Matthew Xia (Genesis Future Directors Award winner)

Featuring astonishing performances from Sibusiso Mambo and Tonderai Munyevu.


It’s 1972 in Port Elizabeth, South Africa and Sizwe Banzi’s passbook gives him just three days to find work. No work and he’ll be deported. That was four days ago.

So when Sizwe stumbles across a dead body with a passbook, he asks himself – does his identity card really define who he is? Could he give up his family and his name in order to survive?

This Tony-nominated play  exposes the struggle for freedom and identity in apartheid-era South Africa, unravelling the brutal absurdities of everyday life under oppression.
