Rhumbelow Theatre will host the political satire Sarafiwe from July 15 to 17, 2022.

Sarafiwe is written and produced by Jayshree Parasuramen and Lee Kunene. It is directed by Ra Kunene.

This political satire is a combination of film and theatre, with sketches that will leave audiences in stitches and in tears. Sarafiwe takes us on a journey through post- apartheid South Africa. A journey of still seeking the promise of a better future for all.

It’s a rip-roaring comedy filled with drama, music and dance. The trio has taken every-day relatable situations amongst South Africans to create this ridiculously heart-warming introspective piece.

The production takes time to reflect on the current culture of South Africa from the perspective of the born frees and ama2000s. Dive into hilariously real scenarios and conspiracy theories with unexpected twists and endings. Although inspired by actual people and events, all characters are fictional.

Performances on Friday and Saturday (July 15 and 16) at 19h00 and on Sunday (July 17) at 14h00. Running time approx. 65 minutes. Join the cast after the show for drinks and some fun.
