About the Show
John Kani's new play explores the racial and political divisions in South Africa.
A compelling exploration of the complex divisions which remain in South Africa 25 years on from the country’s first post-apartheid democratic elections. South African activist, playwright and actor, John Kani (Black Panther, The Island) writes and performs in "Kunene and the King" alongside South African actor, Anthony Sher (King Lear, Death of a Salesman).
The play is a compelling if cursory exploration of the legacy of Apartheid as expressed through the fast-flowering yet prickly rapport between a dying white South African actor and the elderly black male nurse who comes to tend to him.
