Theatre 'alive and well' in South Africa

Over the past 26 years the Market Theatre’s Zwakala Festival has produced numerous plays which have gone on to feature in other festivals and theatres across the country.

It's a space where countless talented writers, directors and actors have been discovered and developed.

The festival returns to the Market Theatre, this weekend and audiences are being promised several exciting new performances.

A play called Pilgrimage questions themes of violence against women and where the violence in men comes from.

We have one play that focuses on the clash between religion and African culture.
