The team of Lunchbox Theatre spent an intensive 6 days rehearsing their new show, first time directed by someone who is not part of the team – the wonderful, nationally acclaimed theatre maker Nhlanhla Mkhwanazi.

This play is targeted at high school learners and adults, and aims to encourage people to get tested and know their HIV status. Something that can help people to make the right choices to live a long and healthy life. The story centres around 3 brothers who leave their rural homes to work on the mines in Jo’burg. Each embarks on their own journey of discovery as they face the many challenges they confront.

The cast of Mncedisi Ncedani, Amanda Valela, Gaillene Isaks, Siyabonga Zabo and Stuart Palmer all gained valuable experience working closely with Nhlanhla over the 6 days. The show will be polished over the next couple of weeks. Keep and eye on local press and our Facebook page for more info.This project is made possible with the generous support of the National Lotteries Commission.
