The Afrovibes Festival makes a welcome return this autumn, bringing some of the very best of South African arts to the UK.


Thabo Mbeki was the man charged with succeeding Nelson Mandela as the second post-apartheid President of South Africa in 1999. After a controversial nine years in high office, Rhetorical revisits some of his most famous speeches, laying bare his powers of persuasion, style of governance and impact on citizens.


Don’t miss your chance to see this outstanding piece of theatre by ‘Township Tarantino’ writer and director Mpumelelo Paul Grootboom (Township Stories, Foreplay and Welcome to Rocksburg).


“One of the most remarkable pieces of theatre to emerge from post-apartheid South Africa”
**** The Guardian on Township Stories


STRATFORD CIRCUS is delighted to be collaborating with THEATRE ROYAL STRATFORD EAST on this exciting Afrovibes 2014.



Info: Rhetorical takes place at Stratford Circus from 15-18 October 2014 / book tickets
