Sizwe Banzi is Dead

Sizwe Banzi is DeadT933471709
Memorable, moving, funny and deeply human, award-winning Sizwe Banzi is Dead is, quite simply, one of the classic plays of the 20th century. In apartheid-era South Africa migrant worker Sizwe Banzi is getting desperate. To survive and to support his wife and family he needs a job. But to get a job he needs a valid pass. And that's when his problems really start. Because the only way he can get a pass is to be officially 'dead'. Voted 'Best Play' in the London Theatre Critics Award and nominated for three Tony Awards during a triumphant Broadway run, this theatrical tour de force played in South Africa's townships before touring the world to massive critical and popular acclaim.
