 Hungry Road

A production from South Africa’s Brighton Players.

Directed by Zwai Mgijima
With Xolani Ngesi, Zwai Mgijima and Mongezi Ncwadi

One of South Africa’s most exciting young theatre companies make their first visit to the UK with a residency at Conway Hall. The Brighton Players (from the township of New Brighton in the country’s Eastern Cape) create provoking and ground breaking work exploring the key social, ethical and political issues in South Africa today. They will be working with UK actors while they are at Conway Hall creating a new piece of work.

‘Hungry Road’ tells stories about the lives of the unemployed men who gather at the side of the road around South African cities and rural areas waiting for the promise of a day’s work. The three actors spent many hours researching and interviewing these men who shared insights into their lives, their hopes and their disappointments. Their astonishing stories were recorded, work-shopped and shaped into this 50-minute play.

Director Zwai Mgijima leads the three-member cast of Xolani Ngesi, Zwai Mgijima and Mongezi Ncwadi in telling the moving, humorous and sometimes desperate stories of these men and their families.

Tickets: £10 standard, £5 concessions, £2 members of Conway Hall Ethical Society.
