A RAISIN IN THE SUN

 


A Raisin in the Sun awakens hope in the theatre this Heritage Month


Despite the most daunting odds thrown at them by the third wave of COVID-19 and tighter lockdown restrictions, Director Dr. Jerry Mofokeng wa Makhetha and his stellar cast, in partnership with the United States Mission to South Africa, are proud to present Lorraine Hansberry's stage play, A Raisin in the Sun this Heritage Month.



With Keketso Semoko, Nat Ramabulana, Xolile Tshabalala and Gerben Kamper in leading roles, Hansberry's masterpiece in hope, will premiere at the Soweto Theatre on 11 September 2021 and run until 17 September 2021 with a week of double matinee performances. This will be followed by double matinee performances at the Kroonstad Civic Theatre opening on Heritage Day (24 September 2021), and run until 26 September 2021. All performances will follow strict COVID-19 protocols and are limited in audience numbers based on lockdown Level 3 regulations.



"We are able to stage A Raisin in the Sun with immense gratitude to the U.S. Mission to South Africa. Without their financial support we would not have been able to produce a play of this calibre and production value. We are also extremely grateful to the Executive Mayor Councillor Mpho Chakane of the Moqhaka Local Municipality who has welcomed us to Kroonstad with open arms and generous hospitality," says award-winning director and producer Mofokeng





"This production is a gift to me, the cast and crew, and to every member of the audience that will experience it. What a rare opportunity to occupy a magical seat in the theatre in the time of COVID," he concludes.
