The Market Theatre presents The Play Room

Winner of the 2013 Zwakala Festival

Written and directed by Thandolwethu Mzembe

From 19 April to 4 May 2014

Issued by: The Market Theatre  
[Johannesburg, ]

Three mentally disturbed people are placed in an institution, and in their playroom they go through experiences that gradually reveal the truth about themselves and their psychological dislocation. Meanwhile, the male nurse who tends to the patients also has his skeletons lurking in the closet.

The Market Theatre Laboratory is a vehicle for change and skills development that serves urban areas, townships and rural villages throughout South Africa. Over the years, the Market Lab's annual Zwakala Festival has produced work and artists that have gone on to capture the imagination of the world.

Some of the recent plays that have graced the Zwakala Festival include: Go a Phelwa, which was presented by Ratang Bana Recreational Arts Company; Next Sunday, directed by Godfrey Thobejane and Khethiwe Dlamini; and The Journey, directed by Simphiwe Kaya.

This production was made possible by a grant from the National Lottery Distribution Trust Fund

Performance times: Tuesdays to Saturdays @20h15
Sundays @15h15
