Two new productions about anti-apartheid action and activists, showing in London theatres during April and May 2023. Find out more and book tickets (with discounted codes) below.

The Only White, is gripping retelling of a true story in a desperate fight for freedom, a story of the one white man executed for political activities in Apartheid South Africa. But it is also a story of love and courage and comradeship, and love. By Gail Louw (Writer), Anthony Shrubs (Director) and Becca Rowland (Producer). 
Mid-winter 1964, a phone rings at Johannesburg Railway Station. John Harris speaks quickly into the receiver: “This is the African Resistance Movement. We have planted a bomb, It is not our intention to harm anyone. Clear the Concourse.”
They don’t..
The bomb explodes, twenty-three are injured, one dies.
Does the end justify the means? Does one life matter?
