Nanzikambe Arts Theatre returns on stage next Friday with their first 2013 stage play production titledThe Blood Knot.
Speaking in an interview Thursday, Nanzikambe Arts Theatre executive director Chris Nditani said The Blood Knot is ready and the group is ready to display the best acting as usual.
According to Nditani, the first premier of the play will be at Nanzikambe Arts Café in Blantyre where it will be performed three times on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
“It is a great production. We are marking our new chapter in 2013 and as usual we are bringing to our audience the best of us. It is a must watch play with contexts that nurture and educate the audience,” he said.
Written by a South African actor and play writer Athol Fugard and directed by Thokozani Kapiri, the play which is about South African apartheid centres on a story about two brothers; Zachariah and Morris who lose themselves in hopes and dreams about a woman they have never seen. But their naive optimism finally gives way to realism and the consolation they find in being brothers.
After the three performances the group will take the play to Johannesburg, South Africa for the JM Coetzee/Nobel Laureates and Athol Fugard Festivals slated for May 23-26, 2013.
