Current and forthcoming productions
Julius Kesara at the Artscape Theatre (Cape Town, September 2017)
Directed by Siyabulela Sikawuti, Julius Kesara is a multilingual production of William Shakespeare's Julius Caesar, starring an all-female cast. The production grapples with the uncertain South African political landscape, while also acting as a tribute to Sol Plaatje and other writers who contributed to translating Shakespeare into their mother-tongues.
