Hidden voices will be heard while stories from the past will come to life when Artscape Theatre Centre showcases this year’s New Voices Programme from 03 – 28 October 2017 at the Artscape Arena.

The three productions (Imbewu, Night and Day and Once Upon a Nation) on the bill, were selected from scripts, concepts and synopses submitted by individual artists, theatre makers, directors and storytellers from across the country.

Imbewu, written by Sinethemba Twani and directed by the legendary Fatima Dike is the “New Voice” to hit the stage from 03 – 07 October. In this family drama, a father is on a mission to get a second son and successor for the family business.

This comes at a cost to other family members, leaving empty spaces that need to be filled.

The answers to his question lie deep within the family secrets, that will change his life for better or worse while challenging his beliefs.

The second production, Night and Day is a story about Vincent - once an honest man who had never wronged anyone, he now finds himself in prison through a series of unexpected circumstances. Did these circumstances warrant his imprisonment? Did he commit the crime that put him behind bars with good reason?

One morning he awakes and decides that he wants to write a book. In this process he gives us insight into his dark past that led to his imprisonment.

He also “befriends” his prison warden, thus starting a male-to-male emotional journey that examines some interesting questions.

The show, written by Khayalethu Anthony and directed by Khayalethu Mofu will be staged from 10 – 14 October.

Tickets for all productions (R40 for scholars, R45 for pensioners, students and block bookings of 10 or more and R50 for the general public) are available via Computicket or Artscape-Dial-a-Seat 021 421 7695.
