2013 marks the 40th anniversary of the UK premiere of Sizwe Banzi is Dead, created by Athol Fugard, John Kani and Winston Ntshona. It received its UK premiere in 1973 at the Royal Court, directed by Fugard and starring Kani and Ntshona (the year after its world premiere in Cape Town in 1972) where it was performed in repertory with The Island. As well as receiving critical acclaim both in the West End and on Broadway, Sizwe Banzi is Dead and The Island were quickly recognised as cornerstones of the global anti-apartheid movement.
