The Market Theatre is running the long waited The House of Truth, a story based on the life of former Drum magazine writer, Can Themba.
The bio-play was written by Siphiwo Mahala and performed by veteran actor, Sello Maake ka Ncube.
Breakfast Show host, Xolani Gwala speaks to Ncube about the play.
The one element that a lot of people didn't know is that Can basically just wanted to be a teacher. But he was terribly frustrated by the government of the time. He went to journalism on the basis that he won a competition that was ran by Drum.— Sello Maake ka Ncube, veteran actor
He also recalled how Themba's story inspired him when he wanted to give-up acting.
I remember browsing in Exclusive Books in Hilbrow and I came across the work of Can Themba, and that turned things around for me, it changed my life.— Sello Maake ka Ncube, veteran actor
