The Passion Play is unlike anything you have ever experienced before. And please, this appeals to everyone, Atheist, Agnostic or Anglican! You will be challenged, moved and rocked by this show. Our Passion Play is interactive and tactile- while you will not be asked to act, you will be intrinsically involved in this production- and without giving too much away, you will leave the production with a lot to think about. We update our production to challenge you on issues of Xenophobia, Domestic Violence, Poverty and HIV, all in the name of The Passion- oh and I don’t believe you if you say you don’t care about any of these issues. Tell me you are not struggling with Work Permits and Visas. Tell me you are not struggling with the Chinese or that your senior manager wants yet another work day off, to go bury another family member who has recently passed away- this show is topical as it is relevant! And if you REALY don’t care for all this seemingly serious stuff, then you simply WILL love the way this story evolves and plays itself out, in a village that is so beautiful, you will be forgiven for wanting to relocate.
Bonny Banks plays a man dying of HIV AIDS. His tender performance is breathtaking in its simplicity...
Francis Githinji is trying to hold it all together and hoping his younger brother will go to school....
Lesego Nswahu Nchunga plays a domestic worker, Mary, with a skelton in her closet. A powerful performance indeed....
Onkemetse Sebenyane plays a young man with nothing but a wing and a prayer- trying to remain inspired.
