Kunene and the King at Fugard Theatre
30 April 2019 - 31 May 2019
The South African premiere. From 30 April 2019.
Eric Abraham presents a Royal Shakespeare Company and Fugard Theatre production of John Kani’s new play, Kunene and the King at The Fugard Theatre from 30 April 2019, hot off its world premiere at The Royal Shakespeare Company’s Swan Theatre in Stratford-upon-Avon in England.
Kunene and the King is a moving and funny two-hander that provides a fitting tribute to mark the 25th anniversary of South Africa’s first democratic elections after apartheid. Written by actor, activist and playwright, John Kani, who was last seen on The Fugard Theatre stage opposite Sandra Prinsloo in So Ry Miss Daisy, Kunene and the King reunites a powerhouse team with director Janice Honeyman and John Kani performing opposite Antony Sher.
