Mvuzo family of arts will stage an educational production called The Wedding at the Playhouse from August 23 to 27.

Written and directed by Mphathy Shozi, the play focuses on a drug called Woonga, which is currently destroying the lives of the young people all over South Africa and the importance of education. The drug is highly addictive and is destroying lives of the youth and communities.

The Wedding had a season at Catalina Theatre in 2015. Featuring acapella music and poetic narration, it has a cast of 13 and lasts 1 hour 30 minutes.

Schools from the Durban and surrounding areas are invited to bring learners to watch the show that will not only serve the purpose of entertainment but also help to motivate them about education and creating a better future for themselves, It is a very demanding theatre play not to be missed by our young generation,” says Shozi.
