Sizwe Banzi is Dead, The Young Vic

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?

Genesis Future Directors Award winner Matthew Xia directs this momentous, Tony-nominated play which exposes the struggle for freedom and identity in apartheid-era South Africa, unravelling the brutal absurdities of everyday life under oppression. Featuring astonishing performances from Sibusiso Mamba and Tonderai Munyevu. The show sold out months before opening last summer – don’t miss it in 2014.

Size Banzi is Dead ends on the 15th March, 2014.
