The Ragged Trousered Philanthropist - The Isango Ensemble

After last year’s Woyzeck, there’s some more spectacular South African musical theatre coming to London next month, courtesy of the award-winning Isango Ensemble. The company’s performers, who are from townships around South Africa, reinterpret Western theatrical and operatic classics by placing well-known stories in new and powerful contexts that highlight South African historical and contemporary realities.  They are kicking off their international tour with three concurrent shows at the Hackney Empire in London:

La Boheme – Abanxaxhi
11th May – 1st June
Sneak preview available here.

The Ragged Trousered Philanthropist – Izigwili Ezidlakazelayo
12th May – 3rd June

Aesop’s Fables
13th May – 2nd June

Ticket prices range from a very affordable £8 to £34, with various discounts and multi-buy deals on offer – for instance, if you want to see all three shows, you can get £12 off. More details here.
