ZAR150

August 2 @ 3:00 pm - August 28 @ 9:00 pm

August 2022, will mark the 10 year anniversary of the Marikana Massacre which saw 34 protesting mineworkers killed as a result of police brutality in Marikana, Northwest. To pay tribute to the traumatic loss of life, the Marikana Musical returns to the The South African State Theatre between 2nd to 28th August.

What Can I Expect From Marikana The Musical?

The Musical is written and directed by veteran South African movie director and writer Aubrey Sekhabi. The production is an adaption of the book We Are Going to Kill Each Other Today: The Marikana Story by Thanduxolo Jika, Sebabatso Mosamo, Leon Sadiki, Athandiwe Saba, Lucas Ledwaba and Felix Dlangamandla.

The play follows the lives of the mineworkers and their families as well as events that lead up to the massacre. The play will also feature the character of Noki, who became the face of the strike. He's also known as the "man in the green blanket" because he was often photographed donning the blanket.
