Sizwe Banzi Is DeadSet in 1972 in Port Elizabeth, South Africa, this play follows Sizwe Banzi and his desperate search for work. His passbook allows him three days to find something, any longer and he will be deported. It's now the fourth day. Stumbling across a dead body in possession of a passbook, Sizwe must make a difficult decision - can he give up his name and family in order to survive? Matthew Xia's revival of Athol Fugard, John Kani and Winston Ntshona's play exposes the struggle for freedom and identity during apartheid and provides the perfect reminder of Nelson Mandela's great battle.

About The Young Vic

Knocked together out of breeze blocks for a minimal budget in 1970, Lawrence Olivier's experimental theatre was intended to last for five years, and provide an inspiration for the new generation of performers. But this was an experiment that worked and, years later, the Young Vic remains south London's premier venue for the contemporary, the shocking, the controversial, and the bizarre.
