The Cry of Winnie Mandela

March 30 @ 7:00 pm April 28 @ 10:00 pm

The Cry of Winnie Mandela is a compelling journey through history, emotion, and the enduring strength of the female South African spirit. The production is based on the popular novel by poet, novelist, and essayist Njabulo Ndebele. The Cry of Winnie Mandela is a poignant theatrical production brought to life by The Market Theatre. The production has recently been extended and will run from 30 March until 28 April 2024.

What Can I Expect From The The Cry of Winnie Mandela?

This thoughtful new play of resilience is adapted by Alex Burger and directed by the award-winning MoMo Matsunyane who is the current Standard Bank Young Artist Winner for Theatre. Through the imagination of a literary professor, the action centres on the stories of four women who reflect on a period of waiting during the absence of their men.

Between intense emotional moments and cleverly injected humour, the dynamic theatrical adaptation weaves together their private accounts. Where they will be exposing the shadows, isolation, and complexities of their evocative experiences. A series of intimate and powerful conversations unfold as the characters reveal the profound impact of this period of their life, delving into the depths of their longing and uncertainty as they forge their stories to that of the life and times of Winnie Mandela.

The universal theme of waiting is a central motif, allowing the audience to reflect on the historical struggles of women while drawing parallels to their own contemporary lives. You are invited to join these resilient women as they gather and share their stories. The women will also sing, and metaphorically drink their “tea” – a potent blend of strength and vulnerability.

Don’t miss this powerful exploration of love, resilience, courage, and the indomitable spirit of women. Please note that under 14’s are allowed and late entry will not be permitted. Tickets range between R150 and R200.
