RSC Kunene and the King by John Kani
South Africa, 2019. Twenty-five years since the first post-apartheid democratic elections, two men from contrasting walks of life are thrust together to reflect on a quarter century of change.

Fellow South Africans Janice Honeyman (Vice Versa; The Tempest, 2009) directs and Antony Sher (King Lear, 2016 & 2018; Death of a Salesman) performs opposite John Kani in this important world premiere.
