On Saturday morning’s edition of Saturday’s Role With Reno, host Renos Spanoudes spoke to Sello Maake Ka-Ncube about his life and career, and The House of Truth currently on stage at the Auto & General Theatre on the Square.
The House of Truth.
Siphiwo Mahala’s The House of Truth, a bio-play based on the life of Can Themba, comes to the Auto and General Theatre on the Square from October 31.
Presented by Daphne Kuhn, it stars Sello Maake kaNcube and is directed by Vanessa Cooke. It runs until November 18.
The production premiered at the National Arts Festival in June 2016 to rave reviews and sold-out shows. It opened the 2017 Market Theatre season to sold-out shows. It is back by popular demand in Gauteng from 31 October and a “must–see” for all South African theatre lovers.
Flowing from the pen of Grahamstown-born writer Siphiwo Mahala, and starring the venerable Sello Maake kaNcube, the play is laced with wit, humour and a deep sense of irony. It reveals the circumstances that inspired some of Themba’s most intriguing works as well as some profound aspects of his life that are barely written about.
This enthralling piece of theatre is presented by one of South Africa’s most accomplished and internationally revered actors.
