The life and vibrancy of old-style Sophiatown is about to be rekindled, as this classic musical returns to the stage.

A lively and memorable musical that is being revived with a new, young cast under the experienced eye of director Malcolm Purkey. Despite the violence and poverty, Sophiatown was a legendary black cultural hub and the epicentre of politics, jazz and blues. It symbolised a society that allowed a freedom of action, association and expression, where people lived together in harmony, undivided by race or colour.
