This year's festival, which runs at the Africa Centre in Covent Garden from 26 September to 8 October, features Msamati's Memory Play and Tamba Tamba. The latter is two evenings of improvised performances on 28 and 29 September - “the ultimate ‘on-demand’ entertainment.”
There are also plays written by J Sibusiso Mamba (Midnight Train to Sunrise) on 26 and 27
September, JC Niala (The Strong Room) on 30 September and 1 October, and Lizzy Dijeh
(Message from a Far Country) on 7 and 8 October.
Tony Award-winner Eve Ensler also contributes with a double bill of two contrasting plays which challenge the hypocrisy, perception and identity of the modern world.For full details of each play and to book tickets visit www.tiatafahodzi.com.
