Writer, director and drama facilitator Xola Mziwakhe will present his production Azania at Stable Theatre from May 24 to 27, 2021.

“Azania is an African story and it is an honour to reflect African stories in an African Month,” says Mziwakhe. “Bantu Africa is about a journey of hopes as he searches for his daughter that disappeared during apartheid.”
