Nobulali Productions in association with The Playhouse Company presents Nothing but The Truth by Dr John Kani, in a widely-admired learning aid production geared to assist school learners who are studying the play as a set-work.

Hailed as a “deeply-felt portrait that delicately weaves the extraordinary and the ordinary in its characters’ lives” (New York Times), Nothing but The Truth is a gripping investigation into the complex dynamic between those Black people who remained in South Africa and risked their lives to lead the struggle against apartheid, and those who returned after living in exile.

The staging by Nobulali Productions of Nothing but the Truth is directed by Hlatsi Mokgonyana and designed by Neil Coppen. The cast includes Ayanda Khowa-Fali as Thando, Rheem Manganyi as Mandisa, and Dambuza Nqumashe as Sipho.

The production will have one public performance in Durban in the Playhouse Loft on August 7 at 15h00. Public booking is via the Playhouse Box Office on 031 369 9540 or 031 369 9596 (office hours). Or book through Computicket on 0861 915 8000, or online at
