Exile and back

2008-06-12 00:00

THE Playhouse Company is presenting the internationally acclaimed play Nothing But The Truth in the Playhouse Drama theatre from June 17 to 29.

In New Brighton, 63-year-old librarian Sipho Makhaya prepares for the return of the body of his brother Themba, recently deceased while in exile in London after gaining a reputation as a hero of the anti-apartheid movement. As the story progresses, the interaction between Sipho, his daughter Thando and his London-based niece Mandisa, leads to the uncovering of conflicting expectations as well as new-found perspectives, as each character forges a sense of reconciliation between the past and present.
